It depends on your machine.

Eep! Now I can see why it take 3 hours to compile! I compile on a
Celeron 1.7GHz box with 3/4Gb memory and RedHat 9 and it takes about 7
minutes here. I also compile it on my 1.3GHz Celeron laptop and it takes
about 15 minutes from scratch.

I'd suggest getting hold of a newer machine more than anything - a P233
really is archaic. Scribus will still work, but it will be slow. In
part, that is down to the dependancy on Qt (which is slow anyway), but
it will really be down to the box you're running it on. Sorry.



The world is throwing away oppressive regimes
Which don't allow people to choose.
Wars are fought to topple these people.
Yet the folks who do this, still use Windows.
Double standards or not understanding why they did it?
