    owenp macrumors newbie

    Hi, iMac OS X 10.6.8 Late 2008 New hard drive fitted 2 months ago by local Apple shop. Upgraded memory via Fusion to 4 GB. When I run the permissions verifications check in disk utility I get a long list of errors. Then I click repair permissions. After it is finished running if I click verify again I get the same list of errors. Is this normal? I have repeated the process several times one after the other & the results don't change. Am I doing something wrong? Or does the repair permissions not actually repair them at all??
    Thanks owenp
