  • Hello
    in W2k and Linux (SuSe)it works real well;
    but now I'ved tryed to install in a 'smaller' PC with 200Mhz which only can work with Win98.

    Please tell me: Its generell possible to run under Win98 ?
    In Moment Inkscape is going down by 'Installation/start' with one error_msg. The Viewer works well.
    Thanks
    carla

    • Looks like it doesn't?
      As from:
      http://sourceforge.net/project/shownotes.php?release_id=372083&group_id=93438

      "Due to issues in GTK 2.8 beyond our control this version of Inkscape will not work on Windows 95/98/ME. Please do not send us crash reports
      from those platforms. We hope to be able to resume support for these platforms in the future, but no specific committments can be made at this point."
