Filemaker Server 11, crash at installation on Leopard Server 10.5.8

Your post

Hi All,


I'm having issues installing Filemaker 11 server (downloaded yesterday, I assume that's the latest version) on Leopard Server.


The Machine is an xserve g5 ( = PPC, not Intel). The OS is a fresh as it can be, we've just updated from 10.4 to 10.5 (clean install). All updates have been performed (current version: 10.5.8).


The installer doesn't start, after several attemps, it displays "Authenticating Installer, Please Wait..." for a few seconds and then crashes. Sometime it crashes before displaying that message.


I do not wish to reinstall the whole system, and it would be great if it could be ready to go by monday morning when everyone here starts work again.



See logs/reports attached below.


Thank you!

System log displays two different crashes.

This is logged when the "Authenticating Installer, Please Wait..." message appears.

This crash is when it doesn't even display the "Authenticating Installer, Please Wait..." message. And crashes before that.
