I'm running OS X 10.5.8 on a MacBook (13-inch Mid 2009). I'm trying to repair permissions in Disk Utility, because:

-I just did a hard restart

-Lately, every so often when I plug in my second monitor, the computer freezes and stays that way until I do a hard restart.

 

About the permission repair messages:

 

This was first on the list, and it went away the first time I repaired:

Permissions differ on "private/var/log/secure.log", should be -rw------- , they are -rw-r----- .

 

Then there are about ten messages, which are on this list: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts1448, and which never go away.

 

After that there are 9 messages which are not on that list, and they don't go away no matter how many times I click repair. They are:

Permissions differ on "System/Library/Frameworks/AppKit.framework/Versions/C/_CodeSignature/CodeResou rces", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DotMacSyncManager.framework/Versions/A/_CodeS ignature/CodeResources", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DotMacSyncManager.framework/Versions/A/Resour ces/DotMacSyncHelper.app/Contents/_CodeSignature/CodeResources", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DotMacSyncManager.framework/Versions/A/Resour ces/dotmacsyncui.app/Contents/_CodeSignature/CodeResources", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DotMacLegacy.framework/Versions/A/_CodeSignat ure/CodeResources", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext/Contents/_CodeSignature/C odeDirectory", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext/Contents/_CodeSignature/C odeResources", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/Extensions/IOUSBMassStorageClass.kext/Contents/_CodeSignature/C odeSignature", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

Permissions differ on "System/Library/SystemProfiler/SPDisplaysReporter.spreporter/Contents/_CodeSign ature/CodeResources", should be ?--------- , they are ---------- .

 

What do those last 9 messages mean, should I worry about them, and if so how do I repair them?

 

I also verified the disk and it's fine.

 

Thanks!

    Hello,

     

    Normally you ignore repeated Permission Repairs if the last line says Repairs Completed, but "should be ?--------- , they are ----------" indicates some problem I'd think, I've never seen that.

     

    DotMac & MobileMe are dead, in System Preferences>MobileMe, do you have a username & password entered there?

     

    If so, remove both.

    Yes, you can apply the Combo update even if it is Installed already.

     

    Great catch on the 10.5.8 Permissions thing, see VK's great reply to WZZZ's post on...

     

    right, these ones are actual errors although I don't know how serious they are. the solution is very simple. reinstall 10.5.8 *twice in a row*. do not repair permissions in between installs. then run repair permissions and those kind of messages should be gone.

    Yes, you can ignore any repeated messages if it completes once.
