the images for scribus 1.3.6 won't work on OS X 10.4.

thanks to martin costabel's support i could successfully use fink to 
install scribus by installing the "scribus135-aqua" package on 
my mac mini (intel).

you may first install qt4 binaries... here it compiled the whole qt: it 
took hours!

finally, i planto produce a dmg for OS X 10.4 when the stable scribus 
1.4 get released... if my computer will still have 10.4 by then...

also, if you want to keep on working on your powerbook, you may think 
about installing some sort of linux: it will be much easyer to get 
modern software to work!
