    Default Sword-based apps on PPC

    SUSE 11.0 on eMac G4: The JSword/BibleDesktop Java app freezes on an unknown error. No errors reported on the commandline. Bibletime is not available for me, yet. No trace of GnomeSword that I can find.

    Is there any reason I can't use the packages built for 10.3/PPC? Or should I try to build from SRPMs?

    Hi
    I helped a user maybe a month or so ago to compile sword/bibletime
    etc from source on x86..(can't remember when though lol). There were
    some issues with gcc4.3 I imagine it should build ok for ppc though.

    Thank you both. I managed to compile Bibletime from source as the shortest path, since my desktop is KDE. I tested it a couple of times and it seems to work fine.

    I simply used the latest SUSE SRPMs I could find, and used rpmbuild to tell me what dependencies were missing.
