I never had any problems with my permissions before I updated to 10.7.5 but now I have something that will just not get repaired, is anybody else experiencing the same. It's reoccuring everytime, so Disk Utility isn't repairing it despite what it says.

I haven't experienced any issues with the monitors, but did notice how the update created an invisible folder in the Preference Panes folder called .Displays and created an alias for Display.PrefPane and moved the original to the .Displays/V1 folders.

Is this just another glitch that has happened before with Disk Utility in previous versions of OS X?

    Permissions repair complete

     

    As long as you see, "Permissions repair complete", there's nothing to be concered about.

     

    What you see are messges. That doesn't necessarily mean there is anything wrong.

    I am having the same problems with the persmissions. The permissions never get reparied.

    I have even reseted the Home Directory Permissions and ACLs and it didn't fixed it.

     

    I think it must be somethign wrong with those permissions.

    Hi,

     

    I have just had a look at the permissions on my hard drive following the upgrade to 10.7.5.

     

    Following the update last night, I ran the 'Repair Permissions' process on my hard drive - it picked up a load of permission issues, it reported that it had fixed every one of them and then reported 'Permissions Repair Complete'.  So I carried on.  Just re-run the process a day later, it reports the same ACLs as issues and that the permissions have been repaired.

     

    From my experience and what I've read here and on the web, the permissions aren't being repaired following the installation of this upgrade.

     

    I expect Apple to release an update to fix this issue and also the Time Machine/Spotlight issue that others are reporting.

  • 4. Re: Permissions Repair after 10.7.5
    majesticdesign Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Definitely is a bug in this respect. Looks like everyone that has updated 10.7.5 have these issues. As I have two mac's on both I am have the same issues described above.

     

    Not sure when they will fix the problems, though .

  • 5. Re: Permissions Repair after 10.7.5

    The "problems" in your repair-log seem really nothing to worry about. Most of the issues are related to language-files (.lproj) which were even save to be deleted (exept the English.lproj or en.lproj or any other translation you would like to have on your system). Tools like Monolingual can scan your system and delete every unnecessary translation you don't ever use. This could save you several GB!.

     

    Some other issues point to a .Display Preference Pane. Files or folders beginning with a "." are  invisible in the Finder. The case, that there is an invisible PreferencePane in your System/Library is a bit strange. You could check, if there is another PrefPane which has no "." will say "Display.prefPane". I guess you will find it! The one with the dot may be there by mistake, perhaps the installer of 10.7.5 left it over. You can try to move the .Display.prefPane to a different location (an external HD for example) and see, if something changes on your system. Open the System Preferences from your Applications-Folder and spot the "Display" icon. If it's there and you can open it, everything should be ok. If not, you can move the .Display.prefPane back to /System/Library/PreferencePanes and live with it.

     

    A bit more complicated are the lines "Permissions differ on “System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras/Displays.menu”; should be drwxr-xr-x ; they are lrwxr-xr-x" to "Permissions differ on “System/Library/PreferencePanes/Displays.prefPane”; should be drwxr-xr-x ; they are lrwxr-xr-x". Here the system expects to find a directory (d...) but finds a link (l...). Either Apple has changed the structure of the /System/Library Folder and forgot to tell the "repair permissions tool" about it or something may really be wrong with the update. For a test you can try to put the Display icon into your menubar to see, if it works. Open the System Preferences app, go to the Display section (on my German system it's called "Monitore") and check "Show Displays in Menubar" (I hope this is correct... German, you know...?!). If the icon appears everything should be ok and there is nothing to worry about.

     

    As said before, most of the "issues" of the repair permissions tool are only informational messages. If your system is working normally, you really don't have to worry about.

    The 'Repair Permissions' process in 10.7.4 corrected all of the permissions issues that it found, since the upgrade to 10.7.5 it doesn't do 'what it says on the tin'...

    Same issue since going from 10.7.4 to 10.7.5.  I am not having any problems, I only became aware of this because I was considering upgrading to Mountain Lion and remember reading a recommendation to always repair disk permissions before an major upgrade.  Don't know if this is fact or fiction, but seemed like a reasonable preventative step.  Don't know...Does an OS upgrade replace the permission structure anyway?

    Following the installation of the 10.7.5 Supplemental Update this afternoon, the permissions issue seems to be still there.  I will check again tomorrow, to see if was just a 'one off' repair following the update...

     

    It does remind me of 10.6.5

    I have just submitted a Bug Report for this under the following reference;

     

    12450195

     

    Let's see what Apple's response is.  Its not causing me an issue, its just something that has been caused by the installation of the OS X Lion 10.7.5 (Build 11G63) update.

    Any news?

    I'm experiencing the same problem

  • 14. Re: Permissions Repair after 10.7.5
    NeilHobbs Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)

    Nothing yet back from Apple, but I expect to hear from them in a few days.

     

    I've upgraded to ML this evening and its resolved all of the issues that I had with 10.7.5.  I can confirm that the 10.8.2 Supplemental Update is not included within the download from the App Store.
