Debian Sarge 3.1 (in use)
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 9 (updated by SLES 10, see below)
SuSE Linux Enterprise Server 10
OpenSuSE 10.0 (just for testing)
Mac OS X 10.4.7 (_not_ Server, for testing only)

x86 (in use, all Linux systems)
PPC (Mac OS X)

1.1.3 (all updated lately)

~ 900 users (in  use, currently in LDAP)
~ 1200 devices (mac authentication, planned, still testing ...)

Debian: selfbuilt package
SuSE: selfbuilt package
Mac OS X 10.4.7 (not server!): source install

Debian and SuSE: worked out of the box

Mac OS X 10.4.7 (not server!):

 the "./configure" script adds a line "INSTALLSTRIP = -s" in "" which
 produces errors (as reported: "Symbol not found: _debug_flag"). Remove the
 "-s" option solves the problem, another solution is running
 "./configure --enable-developer". so the following works:

   # ./configure --enable-developer
   # make
   # sudo make install

 maybe important: i did not build any of the following modules due to missing
 libraries (did it just for testing and contriubution, its not a productive
 system; maybe next year ...): any sql-module, unixodbc, rlm_counter, rlm_ippool

> Thanks in Advance from the FreeRADIUS Development Team
thanks in return to all developers for their great work and assistance!
