You're better off either downloading from anoncvs (instructions below)
or getting the 1.0RC1 tarball from the Scribus website - 0.8 had a good
few number of bugs in it ;-p



Getting Scribus from anoncvs

cvs -d :pserver:anoncvs at ahnews.music.salford.ac.uk:/usr/local/cvsroot

when asked for the password, press return

cvs -z3 -d
:pserver:anoncvs at ahnews.music.salford.ac.uk:/usr/local/cvsroot co

this will download the source into a directory called Scribus - you then
just cd Scribus, ./configure, make, su, make install and you'll have
what will be the final 1.0 release (beta)

anoncvs access is provided by the Internation Media Centre, University
of Salford.
