From the Apple Discussion Board on iLife ’05 (which just shipped yesterday and came to me sent 2 day FedEx) I installed it, but haven’t played yet 🙂 These are some real important tips.

Be sure, whatever order you use, to repair permissions after installiing iLife ’05. If you have issues with iDVD operating sluggishly, repair your iPhoto database /library- hold down the shift & option keys and start iPhoto and follow the dialogs…note it can take a considerable amount of time to complete.

If you recently installed iLife software, it’s a good idea to open each application in the following order: iTunes, iPhoto, iMovie, and then iDVD. Because these applications are integrated to browse and import files from each other’s media libraries, this ensures that you will be viewing the most up-to-date versions of your Music Library, Photo Library, and Movies Folder no matter what application you’re using.
