Scribus on Windows 2000:

there is a link for screen shots at the bottom.

Downside: Needs a fair amount of horsepower - 512mb of ram minimum and a
fast disk drive. Not everything works 100%. Need to know how to install
Cygwin the KDE-Cygwin packages just so.

Upside: Excellent display quality. Once loaded performs *very* well.
Screen redraws are surprisingly quick with good hardware.

Bottom line: We will have it sorted out and documented pretty soon..

has a listing of all the latest RPMS for Mandrake, RH and Suse. I would,
if you have common hardware and setup, rebuild the source rpms with the
latest source tarball and then use these for the other workstations. 


has the rpms I built for Marti Maria's  littlecms, including the
libraries, utilities and devel rpm to compile CMS support for Scribus.
The SRPMS with some spec file tweaks will probably re-build fine on Suse
and Mandrake. 

Let me know if you need some hints. I do not know Suse well, but I have
been working quite a bit to perfect building RH rpms.
