    Hi All,

    I have had a few probs lately with some spinning beach balls & a few Kernel Panics. Today, I did a Repair Permissions (as that is what most advise doing first when dealing with most issues) & the RP report found a bunch of errors (all seemed to be Java ones) that it stated as repaired.

    However, there were three others that are different and the first was:

    ACL found but not expected on "private/etc/apache2/users".
    Repaired "private/etc/apache2/users".


    Is this now OK? The second & third are "Warning" ones which has a novice like me very concerned as I do not know what they mean/are or what risk they pose/damage that they might be doing - they are:

    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.


    Please can someone tell me what this means, how bad it is & how it can be fixed easily by a novice? I have also run an app called "Clean My Mac".

    Many Thanks,

    Bazzy!

    Hi,

    Many thanks for the info - being the computer language novice that I am, I got got a little worried there when reading the word "Warning"! I love my UMBP & am very attached to it!

    Bazzy!
