    I have just installed the iPhoto 8.0.2 update on my Powerbook G4 and, after 5 seconds of opening the application, it crashes/hangs. I have to force quit it in order to exit out of it.

    I have modified the slideshow files so that all the slideshows can play on my powerbook g4 if that helps at all.

    If I revert back to 8.0 or 8.0.1, iPhoto doesn't crash.

    Anyone else experience this yet?

    Yep... but I'm on a Macbook Pro. Lasts 5-10 seconds before crashing.

    I tried to go in and turn off mobilme updates to see if that was it... then repaired permissions, etc.

    Still crashing

    Could you provide a bit more information in regards to your systems? I am curious as to anyone with my UMBP (in sig) has experienced this, what other systems, etc.

    I'll post the results when it's done :)

    No problems here. Just named faces and posted photos to my MobileMe gallery for about and hour. Late 2007 Macbook 2.2.

    works great here. Since it can pull the contacts in from the address book, why can't it save the persons photo to their contact entry?!??!??

    No luck with the rebuild.... iPhoto works fine for other users using same Library.

    Maybe it's time for a plist deletion.... nope. No luck. As soon as I select the old library, crash.

    I have the same problem here on a MBP 2,5Ghz. Crash after about 5 to 10 seconds.

    How can i revert to 8.01 - just replace the new file with the old one via Time Machine?

    Fixed

    I think it has to do with permissions problems having the iPhoto library in /Users/Shared.

    I've now read that this is not supported. Hmm.
    I would have thought the repair options would have fixed it, but it seems the only way was to correct some ACLs...

    In terminal: (replace Username)

    sudo chmod -R +a "Username allow list,add_file,search,add_subdirectory,readattr,writeattr,readextattr,writeextattr,readsecurity" /Users/Shared/iPhoto\ Library

    Possible Fix

    I've been reading around on the Apple forums and it seems that if you disconnect your Mac from the internet and launch iPhoto 8.0.2, it won't crash.

    Haven't tried it yet but can anyone report success with it?

    I'm having the same problem, it stops responding after ten seconds or something, and the spinning beach ball of death(tm) appears.

    I reverted back to 8.0.1; I'd really love to know what causes this problem in 8.0.2.

    iPhoto Update 8.0.2 Breaks iPhoto

    My case is a little different but equally hosed- I'm running a MacPro 3 Ghz Quad Core with 6 GB - after the update I get nothing in the main window until I go into the preferences (anywhere), then all of a sudden the left navigation shows up, and, when I'm lucky, the events. Can't access any events at all, and the camera that synced up perfectly for years is not recognized.
    I have gone all the way back to version 8.0, permissions, disk utilities, etc. etc. Nothing makes any difference.

    Thanks Apple. Nice work for a standard update.

    :confused:
    I'm a real NEWBIE . . . does the above change the permissions and username leaving iPhoto under Users/Shared? Or does it change permissions AND move iPhoto to \Library?

    Neither... this is used to reset ACL (access control lists) if you've already moved your iPhoto library to /Users/Shared/iPhoto Library

    There is no \Library in the command... it's "iPhoto\ Library". The \ is to tell terminal that the space is still part of the path.
