Hi Mojca,

Sorry for not having stated the OS and machine on which I tried the MacTex package: yes I am on a Mac Intel Core 2 Duo, and Mac OS X 10.6.7.
Right now I don't have Tiger at hand, but maybe I can find one with a friend willing to try.

Regarding what you say about your experience of MacTex under Mac OS X 10.6.7, it is indeed weird that it doesn't work for me.
Would it be possible that unzipping with Zipeg (an application which I use for expanding zipped files) may explain the difference between your experience and mine?

Thanks again for your efforts for bringing ConTeXt in various flavors to the Mac community!

Best regards: OK
