No problems Papa rock solid and much faster than Tiger. Suggest maximum RAM however. Used clean erase and install rather than upgrade.

I put Leopard on my PB G4, with one 1 mg of ram, it ran ok. Like Harryb2448 suggest, more ram the better.

I forget, what Mac are you running again? I thought it was a G4 Tower. If so what are the specs?

Like MHC said it's running quite well on a 2.1 Ghz iMac G5 and my G4 Digital Audio with a 1.8Ghz G4. On the lower end it runs quite well on my iBook G4 with 1.33Ghz CPU.

Edit: just found your Rig. Dual 1Ghz G4 with 1.5GB RAM. I would think Leopard would run very well on that system. Is yours the MDD?

I have the MDD 2003 Powermac 1.25 Dual and I upgraded clean install to Leopard and it runs great. I originally have 1 gig of ram and am looking to upgrade to get rid of the beach ball...

But I bought my copy of Leopard from Compusa Firesale for a cool $50, money well spent, Love it.

Leopard runs well on PPC Macs, as long as you stick with the minimum requirements, and as has been said above: more ram is better!

That is a dual processor QuickSilver that is maxed out for ram. It will handle 10.5 just fine, not breath-taking, but fine.
