When I try to open the program, I get as far as "Rebuilding Thumbnail Caches" and then the program crashes.

I do seem to have opened the program through iPhoto Library Manager, but not consistently, and the content is empty, (ie, no photos are visible-like opening the program for the first time).

On the "Report to Apple" window, I noticed the following.


Exception Type: EXCBADINSTRUCTION (SIGILL)
Exception Codes: 0x0000000000000001, 0x0000000000000000
Crashed Thread: 0

Any suggestions are welcome.

MacBookPro, Mac OS X (10.5.4)

    We need the entire crash log...

    Post the Crash Log.

    It's at Home / Library / Logs / Crash-Reporter / iphoto.crash.log

    Double click on the file and it will open in the Console. Copy and Paste it in here.

    Regards

    Start with the troubleshooting basics:

    1. Repair Permissions using Disk Utility

    2. Delete the com.apple.iPhoto.plist file from the HD/Users/ Your Name / library / preferences folder. Remember you'll need to reset your User options afterwards. These include minor settings like the window colour and so on. If you've moved your library you'll need to point iPhoto at it again.

    3. Create a new account (systempreferences -> accounts) and see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated. If it's not, then it's likely the app is okay and the problem is something in the main account.

    Regards

    TD

    TD,
    Thanks for the quick reply.

    I did everything you suggested. (In the future you might remind us that it is better to close all apps before starting Disk Utility--otherwise the machine seems a bit confused.)

    Followed your directions and removed the designated file from the preferences folder.

    I created a new user name, logged in, and iPhoto opened. According to this diagnosis, you indicated:

    "a re-install of the app might be indicated."

    Interestingly enough, I thought this might be the problem. So do you suggest reinstalling the program? And if so, where do I get it? I looked over my Panther and Leopard DVD's but could not find it. At Apple's website, it seems they only have iPhoto 8 available....correct me if I am wrong.

    Awaiting your sagely advice,

    Michael.

    Michael

    n the future you might remind us that it is better to close all apps before starting Disk Utility--otherwise the machine seems a bit confused.


    I've never noticed that. Nor have I ever seen it as a requirement anywhere.

    I created a new user name, logged in, and iPhoto opened. According to this diagnosis, you indicated:

    "a re-install of the app might be indicated."


    Actually, quite the opposite. What I said was

    see if the problem is repeated there. If it is, then a re-install of the app might be indicated.


    As the problem is not repeated there - i.e. iPhoto Opened - then it indicates that iPhoto is okay as something in your main account is the source of the problem.

    My next step would be iPhoto Library Manager and use its rebuild function. This will create a new library based on data in the albumdata.xml file. Not everything will be brought over - no slideshows, books or calendars, for instance - but it should get all your albums and keywords back.

    Because this process creates an entirely new library and leaves your old one untouched, it is non-destructive, and if you're not happy with the results you can simply return to your old one.

    TD,

    thanks again for your continued help.

    Following your instructions, I opened iPhoto Library Manager and attempted to rebuild the library. I get the following message:

    Merge

    iPhoto has unexpectedly quit wile importing the roll "Roll 1". If you would like to relaunch iPhoto and continue the merge starting with the roll "Roll 1", click "Continue". If you would like to continue, but skip the roll "Roll 1", click "Skip". If you would like to stop the merge, click "Cancel".


    Anyway, if I hit "Skip," I get the same message repeated with "Roll 2" and then "Roll 3." etc.

    Looking forward to your next suggestion,

    --Michael.

    Go into the Folders inside your iPhoto Library Folder / Originals and se if you can open those files with Preview.

    Affirmative. Yes, I was able to open them with Preview.

    Open a few of the files with Preview and save them. Then try import them to the new library. See if they will go in.

    "Then try import them to the new library. "

    By this do you mean the new library I created under a new user name?

    I tried to import through IPhoto Library Manager, iPhoto crashed and gave the following message.

    Apple event failed, process not found ('core'/'getd' (returnID 1) { ---- = object specifier: {objectClass = 'ikwd'; keyForm = 'indx'; keyData = 'abso'($206C6C61$); container = (null)}; rtyp = 'obj '})

    I've been working on the assumption that iPhoto Library Manager created a new library, and that we could preserve as much as possible of your old library. But this seems a pretty bad case of corruption so let's try the following:

    To create and populate a new library:

    Note this will give you a working library with the same Rolls and pictures as before, however, you will lose your albums, keywords, modified versions, books, calendars etc.

    Move the iPhoto Library to the desktop

    Launch iPhoto. It will ask if you wish to create a new Library. Say Yes.

    Go into the iPhoto Library on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual Roll Folders to the iPhoto Window and it will recreate them in the new library.

    When you're sure all is well you can delete the iPhoto Library on your desktop.

    In the future, in addition to your usual back up routine, you might like to make a copy of the library6.iPhoto file whenever you have made changes to the library as protection against database corruption.

    See if that will produce a working library. If not, let me know at what point it breaks down.

    Regards

    TD,

    I just got back online, the weekend here coming to a close. Thanks again for your continued efforts.

    Move the iPhoto Library to the desktop

    --done

    Launch iPhoto. It will ask if you wish to create a new Library. Say Yes.

    --done. I now have a new file on the desk top which I have named iPhoto Library(new). The Originals are now in this folder.

    Go into the iPhoto Library on your desktop and find the Originals folder. From the Originals folder drag the individual Roll Folders to the iPhoto Window and it will recreate them in the new library.

    This is where the process breaks down. Upon doing this, I get the message

    Unreadable Files: 1
    The following could not be imported. (The file is in the iPhoto Library folder.)

    /Users/michaelhfox/Desktop/iPhoto Library(new)/2006/Roll 129


    As you know that I have no problems viewing the photos with Preview. We are making some progress since iPhoto does not crash on start up, and actually opens.


    If I have erred in following your instructions, I shall labor to redo whatever you advise.

    Gratefully,

    Michael.

    Michael:

    I created a new user name, logged in, and iPhoto opened.


    Having iPhoto work in the new account and not in your primary account indicates that the problem is with your primary account and could be a preference file other than iPhoto's. Here's how do determine if that's the case:

    Trouble Shooting Preferences in Leopard

    1 - Create a folder titled "Preferences A" on the Desktop.
    2 - Open the working Preferences folder, HD/Users/your_name/Library/Preferences, and move the contents to the Preferences A folder on the Desktop.
    3 - Make a duplicate copy of the Preferences A folder on the Desktop as a precautionary backup.
    4 - With the working Preferences folder empty run the application again and determine if the problems is fixed.

    NOTE: you may have to drag the contents of the working folder to the trash and empty if moving the contents to the A folder only copies them instead of moving.


    5 - If the problem is fixed:
    A - open the working Preferences folder (HD/Users/your_name/Library/Preferences).
    B - Open the Preferences A folder on the Desktop, select all of the contents and drag them into the working Preferences folder.
    C - When the Copy window pops up check the "Apply to All" check box and then click on the Don't Replace button as seen here.


    6 - If the problem is NOT fixed, empty the working Preferencess folder and move the contents of the Preferences folder on the desktop back into it.







    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto (iPhoto.Library for iPhoto 5 and earlier) database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.

    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger or later), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 6 and 7 libraries and Tiger and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.


    Note: There now an Automator backup application for iPhoto 5 that will work with Tiger or Leopard.

    Old Toad and TD,

    Once again many THANKS for your continued efforts in helping to solve the problem.

    I tried the Trouble Shooting Preferences as indicated by Old Toad, nothing seems to have improved.

    Here is the latest situation.

    I can open iPhoto under my own name or a new user name. The program is empty, and I can see the yearly (what to call them--)date books under "Source". But when I try to copy/import a jpg, the program crashes. This crash happens regardless of whether I use my name or the new user name.

    I await your continued advice.

    --Michael
