My Mandriva Spring comes with a package for 2.05, so I have nothing to gain by
downloading the sources, except customizing it for Australia, and Spring
raised a new installation issue that I didn't have before. If your system is
the most recent release, it may be the same. Installing your distro's own
package makes life a lot easier, because somebody has already ironed out
those wrinkles, and whatever package you have should work. If you are not
familiar with installing from source, gnucash is not a good one to cut your
teeth on, and you may not even notice the extra features in 2.05. Earlier
versions did all that I asked of them.
To see what version of Gnucash your distro gives you, install it and look at
the bottom edge of the splash screen, or under the Help menu, "About."
