   Subject: Fink/MacPorts : Scribus for MacOS X 10.4.11 with PowerPC G4  

I would like to have a recent and stable Scribus for MacOS X, 10.4.11, and a  
PowerPC G4 processor.

Here are my issues :

- http://wiki.scribus.net/index.php/Installing_Scribus_on_Mac_OS_X

I tried to use fink, but


pb : Gunter$ fink list scribus
Information about 1998 packages read in 1 seconds.
     scribus   1.2.3-1001  Layout program


Could I build nothing newer than version 1.2.3-1001 using fink ?

Then I tried to use macports, according to

- http://docs.scribus.net/index.php?lang=en&page=install5  .

Unfortunately I did not know what to do here :

- Install Qt4 4.5.0+ for OSX (downloadable from www.trolltech.com) ,

as I did not find Qt4 4.5.0+ on this website, and as I do not know what  
version to use instead of 4.5.0+ .

I am simply a beginner regarding using fink and macports for generating an  
own Scribus version.

Thanks for any hints !
