on an ibook g4.. i'll run disk utility once a day and i ALWAYS get this message:
permissions always get funky one way or the other, you should not worry about that as long as your machine works fine
Generally permission changes only occur when you've entered your password (loose rule of thumb). Is there something you're doing each day that requires you to enter a password? In particular, what third party apps do you use?
You'll see it every time you verify or repair permissions after re-booting. It's not a worry.
By the way, why are you running that every day? It's not necessary.
What OS release is that? I don't get it after rebooting.
Do you run Disk Utility every time you re-boot? It doesn't start automatically, if that's what you're asking.
Nah, I mean I run it occasionally and sometimes that happens to be relatively soon after a reboot, yet it doesn't let out a peep. It doesn't repair or even notify me of any changes. Nevertheless, as you said, it's something that doesn't need to be run terribly often. After installing software and updates is about it IMO.
it's not necessary to run repair permissions everyday, but it's still a good habit, just in case. it only takes 30sec to 2 min depending on your machine.
i do it too, but i also run cron scripts pretty regularly too
