Installing X11 on Mac OS X 10.5.4
Ok I got X11 to work.
The Mac already had an X11 installed but nothing happened when I tried to start it, except from the icon flashing once. When I tried from the command line I got some messages in the terminal that it tried to start an xterm and a login shell but it seemed to exit immediately.
So I found this: http://xquartz.macosforge.org/trac/wiki/X112.3.0 where I downloaded an almost official non official X11 package for Mac OS 10.5.4. A version 2.3.1 exists but requires 10.5.5 and I don't want to upgrade until I have finished testing on this version.
The package installed Mac-wise normally and I've got a running X11! A bit slow, though. So next step is getting openoffice installed.
