When it was done an hour or so later, it would not boot. Came up to the grey screen with the Apple logo and then would shut down. I searched online and found someone else that had the same thing and solved it by doing an archive and install. That worked, an hour and a half later.
By the way - I'm putting off upgrading to Leopard until the new year. I'll let others discover other as-yet undiscovered bugs. Do keep us informed.

Marrea wrote:But if I decided I wanted to upgrade to 10.5, would my Mac Mini be able to cope I wonder? I've had mine for about two and a half years and it's the entry level 1.25GHz G4 with 256RAM. It seems to be the norm these days that if you upgrade an o.s. you also have to upgrade your hardware at the same time.
Minimum System Requirements
* â€¢ Mac computer with an Intel, PowerPC G5, or PowerPC G4 (867MHz or faster) processor
* â€¢ 512MB of physical RAM
* â€¢ DVD drive for installation

(I take it once you move to Leopard, you can still use Tiger, right?).
Either way, Upgrading to a new Ubuntu, or Fedora (from each respective distro) is just far more convenient.
