So, I'm really excited to get Leopard, but I got iLife 06, of which I use pretty much every application on a very regular basis with Tiger, installed when I bought my two Macs.

If i Buy leopard as a standalone, will I be able to install iLife 06 from the Tiger Disks onto it?

If not, then it is not worth updating too for me.

Thanks,

Brian

Ummmmmmm I am not sure, but I think, you would not be able to install iLife 6 of the Tiger disk.

Now its up to you if you update or not. But I look at it in the view point, that I dont like getting lefted behind, what with apple bring out new stsyems so often, app's change over night 4 months from now, everything will be diffrent, and the app's you use to be able to use,wont work.Or atlest in my experience thats what happens.

There are a lot of folk who would be running iLife '08 and Tiger so I would imagine the it would work the other way around ....

I did a quick Google and as usual there are mixed reports about whether or not you can do it against actual reports of people achieving it ... these 3 links all have people asking your very question:

OS X Leopard clean install or upgrade

iLife '06 is compatible with Leopard.

I did a clean install and later used the Migration Assistant to pull all of my apps, documents and settings over to Leopard. That included the iLife suite, which runs fine under Leopard.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I just did a format and install of Leopard on my MacBook and am actually installing iLife 06 now. Pop in Disk 1 and select Install Bundled Software. Click options to remove any unwanted components (like trial software and/or Garage Band to save space) then follow the prompts.

Hope that helps!

Bump back to the top as this is a very useful thread (maybe should be sticky?)

I upgraded to Leopard last night, unfortunately had to go down the clean install route and so i am now without ilife06. So tonights task is to reinstall ilife06 on to Leopard.

Excellent info, and thanks so much for those of you who are more brave than I in trying this out.

I can also confirm (having just completed the install) that the ilife06 suite can indeed be installed and runs perfectly under Leopard
