Calibre for Mac OS X 10.4.11 ?

I have a Mac OS X 10.4.11, and as far as I can tell, the version of Calibre that is on its website isn't compatible with what I've got.

Is there a version that I can download to my 4 year old laptop?

I'm seeing 0.7.35 to 0.6.18 on the old versions list. Does one of those work with 10.4, or am I just not seeing the right page?

According to the note on the download page 0.7.35 shouldn't work for you.

Note

  1. If you are using OS X Tiger or a PowerPC Mac, the last version of calibre that will work on your machine is 0.7.28, available here .
The change log says this:

Quote:
Release: 0.7.29 [19 Nov, 2010]

New Features

  • OSX binary build is now based on Qt 4.7. Also, the build is now Intel only and requires at least OS X 10.5.2. If you are on a PowerPC machine or an older OS X version, do not upgrade
Keep an eye out. If you have trouble you might have to go to version 0.7.28.

It's just an OS X. It's been working great so far, so I have no plans to upgrade. I'm not a code-savy person, so there are probably relevant details I don't know to mention, but I haven't hit any real snags as of yet. I just wanted to organize my ebooks and convert the files I had for my computer ereading software to something my nook could handle. It's doing that just fine.

download file confusion

angel_gidget: when you downloaded version 0.7.35, which files did you download or did you download them all? Have you had any problems since you did this? I also have an old Mac and I just ordered my Kindle and want to convert some books to put on there.

Just the file for 0.7.35. I haven't had any problems, aside from the fact that certain files can't convert due to a protected code in them, but that basically means nothing would convert them anyway. That's only been a couple books in my collection so far. I also make sure to always ignore the message that urges me to get the latest update when I open the program. So far, so good.
