    I recently did a complete reinstall of my MacBook Pro with the new Leopard.

    However, when I ran the Disk Utility/verify permission I get the following error:

    Does anyone know what this means?

    The SUID messages are completely normal. The ACL messages should also not be anything to worry about. Are you using 10.5.0 or 10.5.1, and if it's the former, did you update the install to 10.5.1?

    Thanks WildCowboy, I am using 10.5.1

    So are you saying I need to do nothing? Is everybody else having this problem when they upgrade to Leopard?

    I think I found the answer from Apple Knowledge Database, and it confirms what WildCowboy said above:

    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=306925

    PHP:
    Title:
    Mac OS X 10.5Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions reports issues with SUID files

    Last Modified on: December 17, 2007

    Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard
    Solution
    You can safely ignore these messages. They are accurate but not a cause for concern.

    Keywords: ktech kmosx5 kdu
    When will they fix this problem?

    if you want to remove those errors, lets say, by 60-70%, just install 10.5.1 using the combo updater. It worked for me
