    i bought my macbook back in the days which came with tiger and ilife06 pre installed. dont ask me why but i deleted iphoto after a while and then installed leopard right over the system. my problem now is that i cant install ilife06 (which came with tiger) back on leopard. i simply cant find it on the two installer disks. somebody told me it might only be available by restoring the whole system back on tiger.

    1) is it possible to install ilife06 on leopard?
    2) is there any other comparable software (e.g. picasa) for mac FOR FREE?


    im a poor student who isnt able to afford ilife08.

    thanks in advance

    As long as you have your restore DVD/CDs you can install iLife. There should be an installer for "Additional Software".

    If you can't find that try Pacifist.

    did not work. it told me that theres a bundle already existing. i just klicked 'update' (the bundle) but i cant find any changes now.

    what i did was highlighting the 'highest' of all iphoto.pgks (4000ks) and then clicking install from toolbar.

    OK, may be that the AppleIntermediateCodec is already installed. Try the iPhoto and iPhotoContent packages...

    shizzle! there it is.
    i tried to install the whole bundle from cd this morning but canceled it after a few minutes because i didnt want to have all other bundle software crap. obviously canceling the install did not stop some files from installing. iphoto, some freeware games and an app called quicken06 (never heard or seen) was installed.

    thx 4 help, iam satisfied!
