    Hi, I did repair disk permissions on my macbook and came up with the following messages which I do not understand. Can some please explain what these messages mean? Is there anything I need to worry about? Thank you.

    I am unsure about those errors, but to repair disk permissions it is best to read this from Apple.

    Edit:
    Open disk utility, click the drive you want, I would verify first (see the button) when done hit "repair disk".

    Thank you Jessica. I did a search here and am trying the "combo update" solution first. Will keep you posted.

    Downloading the update now.

    Okay installed the 10.5.6 combo update and everything is fine now. Mac rumors rocks!
