10.5: How to install Lotus Notes in Leopard
Authored by: EpaL on Nov 27, '07 03:03:25PM
I think I have a safer solution:
  1. Open the Lotus Notes 7.02 DMG
  2. Drag "Lotus Notes Installer.pkg" to the desktop
  3. Right-click the .pkg and choose "Show Package Contents"
  4. Navigate to Contents/Resources
  5. Right-click "InstallationScript" and choose "Open With..." -> Other... and choose TextEdit from the applications folder or choose your favorite text editor.
  6. In the script, comment out lines 13 to 18 by inserting '#' at the beginning of each line (you'll see similar lines with comments in them further down in the script if you get confused).
  7. Save the script.
  8. Double-click Lotus Notes Installer.pkg on your desktop to launch the installer.
  9. Run through the installation as normal (you should now no longer get the "Lotus Notes Mac cannot be installed on this computer" error message)
  10. Enjoy!
For best results, install the 7.0.3 upgrade (linked to in the previous post) after you've installed 7.0.2.
