Well, as its SuSE one should look at www.suse.com (our pkgsrc is based on 6.3).
You'll find any package you need on on of the ftp mirrors. I got gtk and jpeg
rpms from there (note, SuSE uses rpm too).
If you install our SuSE-Package you also get trons rpm2pkg which eases the use
of rpm2cpio. Until we have it in some kind of package, a
rpm2pkg -d /emul/linux/ package.rpm
does the trick. At least netscape6 ran, but it wasn't very reliable.
