It's working on this end... I wonder if it's because the SDL library is missing

Open up the debug console and afterward try running the program again and see if

Hi Jeff:

1.8 won't boot on either of my Macs

eMac is a PPC processor at 1.25 Gig G4 running Leopard (10.5.8)  1 Gig of Ram

and the laptop is a MacBook 2.4 Gig Intel Core Duo with 2 Gig Ram running Snow 
Leopard 10.6.5

the Power PC simply shuts the program down with the following error message

And the Intel gives an error message as follows:

Any ideas?
