      Description

      The Puppet Agent from puppet-agent-1.2.4-1.yosemite.dmg works fine on my i7 MacBook Pro, but it fails to run at all on our Mac Pro (Early 2009) servers. We're running 10.5.5 everywhere, so it's not the OS; apparently the Puppet Agent software has been compiled to run specifically on certain CPUs and not on others. That's my guess, anyway.

      Would it be an awful lot of trouble for you guys to spin up a release that will run on any Mac with Yosemite? We're trying to make a strategic decision about whether to commit to Puppet, but it's tough if we can't put it through its paces on our Mac OS X VMs, which are legion.

      Thank you very much.
