have you install SL?

i have and there where no default *scientific* programs installed.

unless you consider "Dia", a graphics diagram editor as 'scientific'.

in kde's menu selection, there is a heading of 'Science & Math', which
is empty.

menu does have 'KCalc', scientific calculator, under 'Utilities/Desktop'.

granted, i may have moved them to where they are not, too long to recall
for sure, but is do not consider them "scientific".

i also have a menu headings of "Electronics/Analog/Mixed Signal Design"
with "XCircuit Schematic" which runs 'xcircuit', but iirc, i installed it.

i guess i could pull out my backed yum logs and check for sure, but that
is a little more trouble than worth.

most all of them.

this i can only presume because centos site claims to do so.

i did install centos a few years ago and did not like it from start, so
i removed it.


peace out.
