There are currently 2 versions of Tiger, one for PowerPC and one for intel machines.netdog said:The current Tiger is a Universal Binary. Hence, I am using it to run my Intel Mac. Of course Leopard will also be a Universal Binary, supporting both Intel and Gx machines.

What did you do to install the Intel build on PPC hardware?rentzch said:Youll kernel panic if you select the wrong one for the system youre one, but that shouldnt cause any damage.

I disagree that there will be one DVD if only to slow down the inevitable pirating of it on beige boxen.pianoman181 said:So yes, 10.5 will be "universal." In the retail box, there will be one dvd that will install on G4, G5 (still G3 maybe?), and intel machines.
