Easier solution:

from a command line:

#rpm -e scribus

then look here: 	


then download and install with rpm -ivh scribus*

There is currently some issue with not building on Mdv 2009 on i586. 
64bit package compiled fine. I have triggered a rebuild and you might see a 
new package in the next few hours.
