    Problem repairing permissions on MacBook
    I attempted to repair permissions on my friend's 2.0 GHz MacBook and the process stalls out with 1 minute remaining (approximately 90% complete) every time. I tried using the Disk Utility installed on the machine itself and running it from the OS disk (Snow Leopard) with the same result. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    I would try running it with OnyX and see what the result is there.
    Download OnyX for Mac - OS X maintenance & optimization tool. MacUpdate.com
    Be sure to download the correct version.

    Failing that, I would boot from the install disc and verify/repair disk.

    Please post back with the results.

    I did the verify/repair from the boot disc, no issues. I also ran a hardware test, no problems. I will try Onyx.
