An unfortunate series of events led to this - gnumeric was dropped in
favor of gnumeric2, Guppi was found to not build without gnumeric, but
gnucash build with Guppi dropped - configure be thanked... This was a
honest mistake for which we apologize.

I noticed it too late, but we are providing fixed updates via YOU (the
online update) and via our ftp server.

Anybody using gnucash should install this recommended update, which also
brings gnucash to version 1.8.5, and everything will work again.

Yes. It was a bad mistake - again, please accept our apology. Due to the
constraints for updates for released products, we could not push gnucash
and Guppi independently, but had to fold Guppi into the gnucash package.
So don't be surprised if, after the YaST2 Online Update, there still is
no Guppi package installed according to RPM, it's inside gnucash and
will work just fine.

Thanks for the great work with gnucash! I'm actively using it myself too
;-) I really wish I had more time to contribute, but I don't do guile
very well.
