Is Leopard safe yet with Motion?
on Jan 17, 2008 at 4:21:41 pm

Hi all,

My colleagues and I are thinking of getting the Leopard for 5 users but I have shied away from getting it too soon after release as I use Motion often so my question is,

Would I have any technical problems with Motion if I installed Leopard now?

Mac Book Pro 2.4 GHz

Motion works fine with Leopard, but you must properly install Leopard or it will break your Studio install.

Leopard offers three installation types:

  • Upgrade: Doesn't mess up the Studio, leaves everything in place.

  • Archive & Install: This will break Motion, because this installation type doesn't copy over all the required frameworks.

  • Erase & Install: This gives you a squeaky-clean system, but you'll need to reinstall everything, including backing up and restoring user data.

Again, the main things is to not do an Archive & Install, as it is guaranteed to break your Studio install, and you'll end up having to do a wipe.
