note: if you've already installed certain languages for tiger os x, you are forced to upgrade it in the leopard installation. so is there a way to "uninstall" languages from the tiger os?

u might wanna try fiddling around with /Library/Reciepts and see how far that can take u... cos leopard might read the base system's installed method through the receipts generated...

Worked great on my G4 - look in my sig - but as it is running a little slower than my OSX 10.4.10 installation I have kicked it off the second drive and am back to 9.2 and 10.4.10 again.
Probably will install Leopard - gold when new software demands it. But for me there is no real need to switch to Leopard for a while.
Nice eyecandy, different from OSX 10.4, not sure if I like all the changes though....
probably have gotten used to the 10.3 and 10.4 look for years now. Time for a change....not yet ;)

Hi, can anyone help me here please.

I have followed all the instructions and all ok for burning the dvd. I get to that last minute of installation and it crashes. I have even downloaded another copy of leopard burnt to SL DVD and the same thing happens at the end of installation.

In the log error I get,

localhost /Volumes/Mac Leopard/private/tmp/scripts.RzeB/ ./postinstall[426] File does not exist, Will create /Volumes/Mac /leopard/Library/prefernces/com.apple.pcast_integration.plist

Then I get

Could not save crash report to disk

Then I get a huge list of the crash report.

Like I said I downloaded Leopard again in case I had a problem with the first download. I have burnt several DVDs and have also gone through the process of creating a SL DVD several times, and I get the same thing happening.

I have the new (only couple weeks old) iMac 2.4 ghz C2D with 3gb ram. I am running Tiger on my iMac

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks

Your 'couple of weeks old iMac' probably is no PPC machine but an Intel machine, this only works for PPC real macs.
End of this month Leopard will be released so perhaps it's better to wait for the official release and put that on your mac!

Ok. The full version has leaked. Does this method work with the final Gold Master?

Yes - it works. I'm on 9a581 now - installed from a single layer dvd.

What else did you delete other than Xcode and the printer drivers to get it down to 4.3gb? I could only slim it down to 4.5 like this with the GM build.

9A581 from a single layer DVD here too.

I removed Xcode, all printer drivers, and all languages. The final size was 4.2 GB I believe.

anyway, if u do this method of creating a install DVD, the boot time is 15min before it reaches the installer... thats the downside of this method... YMMV...

Can anyone tell me if this is still true as of the GM? I tried this and I thought the system was hanging, but maybe it was just taking a long time. (I doubt I waited more than 15 minutes.)

Anybody? I think mine is going on a half hour now... should I give up, or let it keep going?

(It's at the part where you'd be at the grey Apple logo with the spinny thing. I started it up with cmd-V, so it's showing me the console... the last messages are something to do with Bluetooth, though they don't look like error messages.)
