    Hi all

    I need some help with this error.

    When i repair permissions i get the following.

    ACL found but not expected on "private/var/root/library/preferences".
    ACL found but not expected on "private/var/root/library".
    ACL found but not expected on "private/var/root".

    Can anyone tell me how to fix it please.

    Thanks in advance.

    im going through the same thing but with a couple different actual permission errors. its telling me that they have been modified and can't be repaired. Check my post out its a couple down and see if your getting the same error messages as me.

    I was told to run the **** utility from the OSX **** but that didn't work or me. perhaps that will be the fix for you though
