    Ok, so like many others my idvd 08 was crashing on startup. This is the fix that worked for me. I will post two though since there seems to be another.

    Fix one:
    Run Onyx (repair permissions)
    Dump iDVD permissions
    restart
    Reinstall iDVD (only install iDVD not the other stuff)
    repair permissions
    restart

    Fix two:

    Step 1. Go to your personal Library/Application Support/iDVD folder
    Remove the Installed Themes folder
    Step 2. Go to the system Library/Application Support/iDVD/Themes folder
    Move the themes from the old versions of iDVD to some other place
    I chose to move all of the themes from iDVD 1 thru iDVD 6 out of there.

    The first fix did the job for me when the second did not. Honestly not that happy with iLife 08 but what can you do....
