How did anyone extract X11-Jaguar-Preview.sit? For me StuffIt built into Jaguar extracts it but gives a warning, and the DMG won't mount unless I skip checksumming. Installer crashes upon reading packages. It appears X11LibApple.pkg is corrupted within the mpkg.

EDIT: Okay, it seems to be some issue w/ the version of StuffIt included in Jaguar. It worked fine with a newer version (I just used the latest available).

Very very late reply, I did give this a good go and it seems it’s beyond my abilities at the moment Sad

I'm going to try either tomorrow or tonight to build Links2 from the source. It would be great!

Strong chance, if the 10.2.8 sdk can actually support everything necessary! Thank you for this, thought it was lost to time. Great to see the development related download as well, that is very important to make this useful as it is essentially the X11 beta SDK.

Well now that's something! Could we see Links2 working on Jaguar with this?
