Not sure where to cut this quote, but anyway, Mandrake has rpm's too that 
"just work"...that is unless you're on a 64bit system. For some reason, 
bibletime doesn't like 64bit at the moment from what I understand so you sort 
of have to compile it.

I personally don't use the rpm packages (and I wouldn't use the deb's either 
for the same reason) 'cause I use CVS/SVN for bibletime & sword since I like 
testing and contributing.
