  • What is the status of OpenMFG (client and server) and its compatibility with Leopard (10.5)? -- Read more at http://www.xtuple.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?p=1211

     
    • Give us a few days, it just came out Friday :) ... We want to officially certify the final Leopard release, and once our internal QA is complete, we will.  We don''t expect any major issues. -- Read more at http://www.xtuple.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=574

       
    • I am waiting for some advice as well on this issue.  When I attempt to install the software in Leopard, it crashes while trying to install the demo database, which I don''t really even need.  Are there any ways around this? -- Read more at http://www.xtuple.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=574

       
    • Jeff,

      Are you using the installer or installing the components on your own?  Which version are you installing?
      I have been using Leopard for a few weeks, and I haven''t encountered any issues.  Please let me know at your earliest convenience.

    • Same issue. When running the \"all in one\" installer, the error \"can''t run demodb postinstall\" occurs and the installer does not complete. If you run without selecting the demo db as part of the install process, the successful install is reported, but you cannot launch PostBooks. -- Read more at http://www.xtuple.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=574

      Yep, in Leopard, Apple changed out some of the tools we used for the installer.  This doesn''t affect the client (if you download the OpenMFG demo client, for example, and connect to a database here), and it also isn''t a factor if you install PostgreSQL the old-fashioned way yourself.  But it is a limitation for running the Installer on Leopard for now.  We''ll have a new installer before too long - but in the meantime, if you want to run everything local on one Leopard machine, you''ll need to build PostgreSQL from source.

      Thanks for any help and insight -- Read more at http://www.xtuple.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=574

      We have a few customers running Leopard server without incident.  They were running OpenMFG version 2.3.x when the initial upgrade was performed and are currently on version 3.0.1.  Their PostgreSQL version is still 8.2.x, but they will be upgrading to 8.3.x in the near future.

      Best regards,
