SUSE & the GUI Setup:

You are correct - this issue was noticed after the final CD went to manufacturing. I
believe that there will be a web page up about this shortly. The setup tool is doing
an 'rpm -qi glibc | grep Version' to get the version of glibc you're running, but SUSE
(unlike other RPM based distros) puts the C libraries into a different package (shlibs).
There's a simple workaround with a symlink, but I've forgotten exactly where, and I
don't have a SUSE system in front of me.

For now the easiest thing to do is to simply rpm -i all the packages except the
glibc 2.0 versions of FontTastic and Wine.

Distros without run-parts

After installing the packages, su and apply the following patch to the
/usr/lib/corel/bin/setupWPO2000 file:

glibc2.1.3 based distros

There is a bug in glibc 2.1.3 that will cause an immediate crash on startup in WINE.
You need to run the following command before launching the applications:

$ export LC_ALL=en

You can edit the wpolauncher script to always do this if you like, of course.
