Already done. Just redownload it.

Just downloaded it and I can confirm that it does run on 10.4:

$ ./dmd

I also got further with this one, than with the previous two:

$ dmd/osx/bin/dmd dmd/samples/d/hello.d
/usr/bin/ld: Undefined symbols:
_pthread_mutexattr_destroy$UNIX2003
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
--- errorlevel 1

Apparently it's still using some Leopard symbols for pthread.

Could also be that dmd is now alright, but libphobos.a isn't.
But as long as those two (MDT+SDK) are applied, it should be.

Darnit... using 10.4 pthreads might be difficult.  Posix support was a 
tad weak on OSX until 10.5.  We'd have to version the library code on OS 
version, which would be a tad weird since Apple doesn't really support 
old versions of its OS anyway.

The pthread symbol is there, just not in the UNIX2003 variant.

So at this point it's just a linker issue, even if more behind.

Phew!  Better that than disabling features.

This is exactly the problem. I can confirm that it does not work on 10.4.11. However, it is EXTREMELY easy to get dmd to work on Tiger AND Leopard, but Walter will have to rebuild it linking to /Developer/SDKs/MacOSX10.4u.sdk (just a simple command-line switch when building it). This has to be done when building libphobos too, or we'll get an "Undefined Symbol" error when trying to build our own programs against it. Doing this will make it run on Tiger and Leopard, without having to have two builds for each system.

Walter, could you please do this for the 2.026 build, so we Tiger users can have D too?

It's already done for the compiler (just redownload it), and Sean is 
working on the library. It isn't as simple as you describe, because 10.4 
has a weaker implementation of pthreads.
