i know that iLife '09 doesn't work on Lion GM right now. i'm also wondering if iLife '11 comes with iDVD.I currently have iLife installed on my Snow Leopard computer. If I do a Clean Install of Lion from a USB drive will iLife be on my Mac? If not am I able to install my copy that came with Snow Leopard?
Each mac should come with two DVDs. One is a system DVD(SL) and another is the iLife DVD(Applications DVD).I'll have to look over what I have, but you are saying that Snow Leopard came with an Applications DVD that would have iLife 09, or would there be an applications DVD that came with my iMac (which came with Leopard)?
You can just get iPhoto 11 and install it. I forget but I'm pretty sure your 09 iPhoto Library will get updated. It happens on first launch.I did confirm that I have the Applications DVD that came with my iMac. I think it is iLife 09. I'm probably going to upgrade to iPhoto 11. I have that on my new MBA but never had it on my iMac. I use my iMac for all my photos and my MBA just to view them through home sharing.
I have my iPhoto 09 library backed up on an external hard drive. After I do the clean install of Lion should I first install iLife 09 and copy over the iPhoto Library before downloading iPhoto 11, or can I just buy iPhoto 11 and then copy over the library? Will iPhoto 11 recognize the library from 09 if there was no previous version of the software on the computer or is there a conversion that happens first?
I don't really use the iLife products. They come with my computer, but I'm not a fan. I use Adobe Bridge to manage my photos, but they serve a purpose I supposeThanks, although I did read some more current reviews and it does seem that many people are unsatisfied with the upgrade to iLife 11. I'm not starting to think I should stick with iLife 09 (which I'll mainly use for iPhoto).
What happens when you try to launch iPhoto?I installed the applications install disc that came with my MBP, and I have iMovie, idvd, and iWeb all working. However iPhoto will not launch at all still. Has anyone been able to fix this problem?
I'm not seeing anything other than the Image not found error.Hmm, I am do not know anything about reading those kinds of things, but here is what happens, hopefully it can help you:
Try re-installing iPhoto then. I'm not sure why it won't launch. Sorry I was not much help. Sometimes the quickest solution is just to reinstall. Or wait until others come up with another solutionIf it helps at all, I tried to follow these directions since I seem to be having the same problems, and I realized idvd is having the same problem
however I do not see any pkg file with 'iPhoto' in it. There are a number of files with 'ilife' but nothing with iPhoto or idvd
Thanks for the help mrapplegate. And yeah, for some reason it took like 3-4 reinstalls but it works now lolTry re-installing iPhoto then. I'm not sure why it won't launch. Sorry I was not much help.

You did try the simple thing of deleting the iPhoto .plist from preferences?
