    Hey there.
    I'm trying to repair permissions on my Mac Pro running 10.5.1 with Disk Utility, and I get this list of things it doesn't want to fix.

    Code:
    Repairing permissions for “Macintosh HD”
    Warning: SUID file "usr/libexec/load_hdi" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DiskManagement.framework/Versions/A/Resources/DiskManagementTool" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DesktopServicesPriv.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Locum" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Install.framework/Versions/A/Resources/runner" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Admin.framework/Versions/A/Resources/readconfig" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Admin.framework/Versions/A/Resources/writeconfig" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "usr/libexec/authopen" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/Finder.app/Contents/Resources/OwnerGroupTool" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.
    Any idea what these are and why it can't modify them? I've never had problems repairing permissions cleanly before.
    :confused:

    thanks!

    (oh, running DU off the hard drive, not the disk)

    This is a known problem with Leopard, don't worry :)

    Awesome.
    thanks.
    They all sounded important, and freaked me out, like someone had control of my remote log in stuff.
    :p
