I can't comment on Mathematica 5.1 but I have Mathematica 6.0 installed on Leopard and it seems to be fine except for an error installing the Notebook Indexer. I say seems to be fine since I am not a Mathematica user, just someone who has to check stuff like whether or not Mathematica installs and launches OK as part of their job. If it installs and launches without spewing errors I assume it's OK unless someone complains. When I first ran Mathematica I was asked whether I wanted to install the Wolfram Notebook Indexer plugin for Spotlight. I said yes and the installer did it's stuff then told me: The following install step failed: run postinstall script for Wolfram Notebook Indexer. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance. According to the logs it tried to /System/Library/Frameworks/ ApplicationServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/ Support/lsregister and that doesn't exist. lsregister exists but it's at /System/Library/ Frameworks/CoreServices.framework/Frameworks/LaunchServices.framework/ Support/lsregister I suspect the plugin isn't working but can't be bothered to try and workout how to test that. Can't find any references to the issue as yet, I was looking to see if there were any on this group. mike
