Instructions for MacTeX for Mac OS X 10.3 (Panther) and 10.4 (Tiger)


From MacTeX-2011 onward, the MacTeX install package requires Mac OS 10.5 or higher.

MacTeX-2010 supported PowerPC and Intel on Mac OS 10.3 and 10.4. Just before starting the construction of MacTeX-2011, we made a final version of MacTeX-2010. This version contains TeXLive-2010 with all upgrades applied via TeX Live Utility until the moment that the upgrade server was shut down for TeXLive-2010 in late May, 2011.

The only disadvantage of this distribution is that tlmgr and TeX Live Utility cannot upgrade further, because the upgrade server now supports a later version. Many users don't need upgrades. Users who want to upgrade a particular package can do it on their own, just as everyone did until the introduction of tlmgr and TeX Live Utility.
