In addition to the information provided in the announcement for other platforms, please note that the following requirements have to be met:
- A copy of libc063.dll, which can currently be downloaded from ftp://ftp.netlabs.org/pub/gcc/libc-0.6.3-csd3.zip and gcc434.dll, which can be downloaded from http://download.smedley.info/gcc434.zip. Both files need to copied to C:\OS2\DLL (OS/2) or C:\ECS\DLL (eComStation).
- Ghostscript and Python 2.6 (available from http://os2ports.smedley.info) are required to support some functionality. For instance, Python scripts won't work if Python is missing. The print preview and EPS import will not work if Ghostscript isn't available.

The Scribus Team is much obliged to Paul Smedley for taking pains over porting Scribus to the OS/2 and eComStation platforms.
