   Subject: installation/startup
I am trying to install Scribus on a Mac running 10.4.11 on a Power PC G4 with  
X11 and Ghostscript installed, with 512 MB RAM. I also have Open Office and  
Gimp running successfully. When I go to open Scribus for the first time, it  
begins to open then immediately shuts down. This has happened with both 1.3.7  
and 1.3.8 multiple times, and it's never any different. I have tried  
installing but I'm not sure if I'm doing it right; it's different  
than the others.
