    I have installed Frontrow on my PPC Mac Mini (well, my parents one!) and everything but iPhoto is fine. When i try to view slideshows through Frontrow it's VERY slow at starting them, and sometimes comes up with the 'iPhoto is not responding' error.

    What i thought i'd try is uninstalling iPhoto and reinstalling it. However, i NEED to keep the photo libraries intact. There can't be any chance of them disappearing if i try this!

    So, can this be done sucessfully? If so, how do i go about it?

    Thanks

    Before you try anything else, find the file <com.apple.iPhoto.plist> in the directory user/Library/Preferences and drag it to the desktop. Restart iPhoto and see if that doesn't help.

    I should also ask how you installed FrontRow on the mini. I didn't think this was possible.

    You can uninstall and reinstall iPhoto specifically with Pacifist. Do a search for it on http://www.versiontracker.com. :) It's 100% safe. I've used it countless times after test modding apps.

    Is it the version of Frontrow that came with the mini?
