PClinuxOS (PCLOS) is a version of Linux which is both a Live CD and an 
installable system. I first tried it just over a week ago and I am extremely 
impressed with it. My only disappointment is that the version of Scribus 
included is still at 1.1.6. especially as most of the software is really up 
to date.

If anyone is running PCLOS and would like to bring Scribus up to date, I  
found that the source code would build, but you needed to install the 
following packages first:

libtiff3-devel, libtiff3-static-devel, libcups2-devel, libpython2.3-devel 

You can also use the Mandrake RPM version. Firstly download 
scribus-1.2.1-2mdk.i586.rpm and libscribus0-1.2.1-2mdk.i586.rpm files from 
http://www.gulus.org/scribus/RPMS/ then you need to go to a Mandrake main 
repository, and download libstdc++6-3.4.1-4mdk.i586.rpm. I found this at 

You then need to install these using kpackage, first libstdc++6, then scribus 
ignoring dependencies, then libscribus0. (Scribus will not install without  
libscribus0, which will not install until the old version has been 

I haven't been able to test either for any length of time, so if your computer 
blows up, etc., I cannot be held responsible!!

Hope this is of help to someone!
