I guess your best chances would be to check for programs in ubuntu software center (or with other os that runs from usb/live cd) and than check programs website for installation instruction.

'rkward' is pretty straight forward, can be rebuilt from the
Mandriva rpm : rkward-0.5.3-1mdv2010.1.i586.rpm
( Rebuilding the source SRC.RPM failed.)

A "pclos2010" package is here :
http://rapidshare.com/files/42127180...010-1.i386.rpm
> rkward-0.5.3.pclos2010-1.i386.rpm


'sciDAVis' : The binary scidavis-0.2.4-linux-x86-qt4.4-py2.5.tar.bz2
http://sourceforge.net/projects/scid...r.bz2/download
.. will probably work, if you still have libqt4-4.6 .

An updated PCLinuxOS 2010 :
The QT 4.7 packages are different, and it is also not possible
to build scidavis-0.2.4, which still requires 'qt4 version 4.6'.
....

Just found out, that the mentioned binary
scidavis-0.2.4-linux-x86-qt4.4-py2.5.tar.bz2 seems to work OK.

cd scidavis-0.2.4-linux-x86-qt4.4-py2.5/ && ./scidavis


I got a copy of 'libQtAssistantClient.so.4.6.3' from the live cd.
# cp libQtAssistantClient.so.4.6.3 /usr/lib/ && ldconfig
.. and the link libQtAssistantClient.so.4 was created.
..

thanks knudfl,

I got scidavis working for me after i copied libQtAssistant.so.4.5 from my old Pardus live CD using your instructions.

I went through a lot of trouble trying to compile qtiPlot btw. Just to know it too doesnt compile with qt4.7 :X

Thanks a lot. your help is greatly appreciated.
