I just tried to verfify and repair permissions but disk utility keeps quiting with a message that says, disk utility is losing connection with disc management and cannot complete the task. I've searched for help on the forum but the only suggestion is to run disk utility from the panther installer disc. I've done this and am getting the same message. I tried Onyx as well... same message. My computer is still functioning fine despite the warnings that disk utility gives. I updated all my system software a couple of days ago and also updated Limewire after it wouldn't launch (java problem according to another thread). Limewire has since started quiting repeatedly, which is why i was trying to verify and repair in the first place. I don't need any help with limewire, someones been having the same trouble in another thread but i definitely need help with disk utility, coz this dosn't seem good.
