I've been using 1.3.3.x all along until I upgraded to 
Mandriva 2009 spring recently. Mandriva 2009 only 
offers 1.3.5svn so I thought I'd try it out. However, I 
then decided to play it safe and uninstall 1.3.5svn and 

I can't install without first removing 
libpython 2.6 and half of the KDE4 programs that I use 
now. I'm not going to do that. If I remove 1.3.5svn, 
keep libpython2.6 and then install libpython2.5, 
scribus will install without icons in all of 
the menu bars along with this error message at the 
beginning: "Setting up the python plugin failed. Error 
details were printed to stderr." It will also generate 
a signal 11 crash when I want to close a file.

My guess is that libpython 2.6 is somehow screwing 
around with something that needs to install 

I'm stuck with using 1.3.5svn and libpython 2.6. That 
is why I asked about the reliability of 1.3.5.
