I have tried to install and run the GN242 distribution on Mac OS X 10.4. It
has Java 1.5 update 13, which is the latest Java available for this platform
(OS X 10.4) without hacking.
I selected all options in the installer except the CSW client. The installer
runs fine, although it displays 2 times an empty dialog box that just asks:
"continue?". Answered Yes, both times.
Then ran the newly installed GN (default run, using Jetty and McKoi). It
failed to properly start the applications because of:
java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError: Bad version number in .class file

it. This time the installer posed no intrigueing questions and the resulting
newly installed GN runs fine.
