    Upgraded my powerbook 1.67 DDR to leopard this weekend. Now when I try to repair or verify disk permissions disk utility hangs up and gets stuck. I think this has been discussed here before but typing "leopard" and "repair permissions" into the search engine results in too many threads to pore through. Any ideas before I sit on the phone with my good friends at AppleCare?

    For me it works if I leave it, just do something else for a while...even if the progress bar doesn't move :)

    How long have you left it running for, on 10.5.0 on my iMac it would take about 10 minutes to complete. In 10.5.1 it only takes 4 minutes.

    I would say the longest I have let it run is 15 minutes. I guess I'll let it do its thing while I'm at work later today. Let's hope seven hours does the trick!
