has both:

gal-0.4.1-0_helix_2.i386.rpm <>

gnome-print-0.25-8_helix_1.i386.rpm <>

 <>I use abiword with the two packages above from ximian (except that I use the RH 6.2 versions).
That same site has other packages you may need to upgrade in order to upgrade these. What I
did (based on a suggestion from someone on this list) was to upgrade gnome completely, but
I doubt that you will have to do that just to install those 2 packages.

However, in my opinion, when abisource says that a certain version is for use with Linux
distribution so-and-so, it should be installable without having to upgrade any package
relative to what comes with that distribution. Or, the download page should tell you exactly
what dependencies must be obtained and/or upgraded and where to get them.
