It looks like somebody hasn't uploaded the 9.3 client, sadly.

To get redcarpet, open up yast2, and do the "add and remove software"
thingy. (you have to do sudo su -, because it is in sbin) and install
rcd and rug.

Note that we don't have a gtksourceview and geckosharp up yet on the
downloads page. We are trying to do a new md release as soon as
possible, and we will get packages. Am hoping this gets done in the next
week or two.
