still running a P166 here, with 64 MB Ram, on SuSE 7.1.
Scribus compiles in half an hour, and runs fine on it.
A compile time of 3 hours seems strange to me.
The only small issue is that if the text in a text box gets longer, it
takes some time for the screen to rebuild after every character you
type. This phenomenon has been mentioned before in this list.
So I use some text editor to type a long text, then import it.
