 From my experience, updating _any_ OS without a backup of your data is 
a bit careless. I don't know how reliable OS X updates are, but Windoze 
or most Linux distros aren't quite good at it (with the exception, 
perhaps, of Debian and Gentoo. It's a good idea to do a fresh install of 
SuSE 9.2 and then download the packages you need from SuSE. If your 
compter ran 8.1 without problems, 9.2 should work flawlessly.

In case SuSE shipped a buggy or beta version of Quanta, did you ever try 
nvu (www.nvu.com)? nvu has its own installer, so you don't have to take 
care of dependencies. Did you consider building Quanta from source?

> But I need scribus too! 

Packages for SuSE are available on www.scribus.org.uk.
