    Exclamation Repair Disk Permissions issue HELP!!
    Have just got a new MBP running Leopard,

    After installing a number of applications I then tried to "repair the disc permissions" in Disc Utility, it started to do so with the progress bar growing, however it stopped about 1/4 of the way through and didn't progress any further. I stopped it and tried again, when I did it immediatley resumed to 1/4 way through but still doesn't progress any further - any ideas on what the issue may be or how I can get it to complete the task?

    Have your tried restarting and using the Disk Utilities on the Leopard Disk? Also have you upgraded to the latest version of Leopard 10.5.2 I believe?

    In Leopard this takes a long time . This is Normal in Leopard (Well it is on the 3 macs I have running Leopard in this house) . It took me by surprise the first time as this didn't happen in Tiger.... Just do as follows

    When the progress bar stops just let it alone for about 5-6 mins it will then burst into activity and finish the job .... Bobs your uncle
    Now with Leopard

    The bar will seem as if it is broken and state 1 minute remaining. Start Repair Permissions and go and make coffee. Takes about twenty minutes as this is a much more intensive program that earlier OS X versions.
