Where do I get pre built binaries for Mandrake 10?? I wanted to check
up on the Gimp.org but it's been down for the last 3 days. I run
Mozilla here on Windows XP and Mandrake 10 and both sides are not
letting me in. Also tried out IE and Konquorer, same thing. Sites down
so I can't check up on anything and no one is giving me any feed back on
the status of the site so far! :-( Wrote Sven and asked and wrote the
WinGIMP Yahoo group and asked, nada!!! :-(
So if you know where I can obtain a prebuilt binary and if you know what
all I will have to install along with it then please link me up.
