As you have found, the most recent versions of Chimera do not support
Mac OSX 10.3. We had a "news" item on the home page last fall, which
has since been displaced by newer messages, but here is the text:
November 16, 2007
Chimera production release v1.2470 is available. This is the last
release to officially support Mac OS 10.3. There have been several
changes since the previous production release (v1.2422, June 2007).
Platform support depends on the availability of such machines to our
group, and "older" systems may be dropped as most users migrate to
newer OS versions. It is always a balancing act as to where time/
effort should be spent. Sorry about that,
