As far as I understand, Leopard is using a different X server than
Tiger, and the one that shipped with the Leopard install disks has
some problems. The most recent and actively developed version of the
X server for Leopard is found here:
I hope Martin Costabel, a great contributor to Apple's X11 mailing

I don't know if you will succeed installing Ghostview from the i-
Package, given that i-Installer probably will be looking for
something that has changed in Leopard's X11.
