    Ignore that and stop running Permissions repair. Won't go into the details right now, but all you need to know is if you get the message at the end stating Pemission repaired. You can do this until you're blue in the face and the cows come home and it won't change a thing.

     

    Your Permissions are OK.

    These items are normal and they aren't provoking any harm to your computer. For more information about Permission Repair messages see the following Apple Support article.

    As long as the report ends up with 'Permissions repair complete' then, as far as permissions go, you are fine. You can ignore the various statements in the report:

     

    Permissions you can ignore on 10.5 onwards:

    Using 'should be -rw-r--r-- , they are lrw-r--r--' as an example, you will see the that the permissions are not changed, but the | indicates a different location. This is because an update to Leopard onwards changed the location of a number of system components.

     

    Poster rccharles has provided this description of what it all means:

     

    drwxrwxrwx
     
    d = directory


    r = read

    w = write


    x = executeable program

     

    drwxrwxrwx

    |  |  |

    |  |   all other users not in first two types

    |  | 

    |  group

    owner


    a little more info

    Before the user had read & write. A member of the group had read.

    After, only the user had read & write.
