Right, Just done quick search of the forum (&Apple knowledgebase) but came up with nothing specific (though a few useful asides). Am on a iBook G3 running 10.2.8 and cannot seem to get Disk Utility Repair permissions to finish. Have been running for 45mins but stalling at the very last hurdle - blue status bar 99% full. Nothing unusual flagged up. Is this a known error? Is the disk utiltiy FUBAR? Cheers, Soton.
