I have Rosegarden installed on SuSE 10.0. Packman has it
available for SUSE 10. You may not have set up Packman as one
of your sources. My source is:

I do have a problem with Rosegarden though and because of that
I haven't used it yet. I keep getting this error message when
I launch it:

"System timer resolution is too low
Rosegarden was unable to find a high-resolution timing source
for MIDI performance.
This may mean you are using a Linux system with the kernel
timer resolution set too low. Please contact your Linux
distributor for more information."

I'm not sure what this is or how to resolve it.

Thanks for the info on the Studio-To-Go distro. I think I
might give it a try.
