Old Toad.... IF... and that is a big if... I am looking at the right drives/numbers, my iMac has a 1T HD and it is used as the boot dive. There is a little over 600GB free on the drive.
Memory, if I am reading it right, I have 4GB.
I am currently running iPLM on the second Library, and it seems to be running smoother and faster... at least so far. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Free space isn't an issue. It's recommended to maintain a minimum of 10 GB of free space at all times. Up that to 20 GB if you use iDVD. 4GB memory should not be a probolem unless you have a lot of apps open at the same time doing heavy work.
However, upping the memory to 8 GB does make noticible speed increases in the system and most apps. I upgraded my iMac to 8 GB for $35 at Crucible.com.
Keep us posted on your progress.

It appears that all went well (although it did take approx. 12 hrs) to 'rebuild' a 34GB Library... but it did it this time without all the stops due to iPhoto failing to close. I'm guessing that if there was a problem with a photo/file/album in the library, it was in the first half. (but who knows)
Both Libraries seem to be working fine now.
I 'thought' that when I bought this computer (it's relatively new) that I asked them to 'max out' the memory... but looking yesterday, as you suggested, I realized that there is two unused slots and I can double my memory.
I'll look into doing just that.
Also, if I haven't mentioned it before... iPLM has an UPDATE out.

I'm having the same problem, I cannot move Albums in my main iPhoto Library but can in other Libraries

Don't know if you are having the same problem as me, but I was finally able to fix it using "iPhonto Library Manager" and doing a 'rebuild library' from iPLM.
I may take a while, so turn off the 'energy saver' settings on your computer. IF, I remember right, it took between 6 and 9 hours to run a 'rebuild' on each of the libraries I was having trouble with. But it did fix the problem.
Make sure to get the latest versin of iPhoto Library Manager'. I wish I could remember more, but it's been several months since I was messing with this problem.

Glad to hear it!!! I wonder why Apple has not address this issue. Guess it's not a big enough issue for them. But it drove me nuts, and it took me forever to find someone that knew how to fix it. Actually, I think what I had to wait for was iPLM to update their 'rebuild' function to fix the problem.

A workaround that worked for me:
- create a new folder in albums
- move your albums into the folder
- manual sorting is possible within this folder.
- Select all sorted albums and move them back to the top level (drag and drop just over the 1st album).
