First time Mac user here, just got a Mac a couple of weeks ago, and when trying to verify permissions on the disk, or repair them I get this:

2009-09-23 18:09:47 +0100: Warning: SUID file
"System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.
2009-09-23 18:10:47 +0100: Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DesktopServicesPriv.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Locum" has been modified and will not be repaired.

What's going to/is happening?

How can I fix it?

Welcome to the Forum. There is a heap of info out there on Permissions - have a hunt on this forum, but most of all don't sweat it.

I found both:

Warning: SUID file "System/Library/CoreServices/RemoteManagement/ARDAgent.app/Contents/MacOS/ARDAgent" has been modified and will not be repaired.

and

Warning: SUID file "System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/DesktopServicesPriv.framework/Versions/A/Resources/Locum" has been modified and will not be repaired.


in the list of permission errors, "you can safely ignore." I strongly encourage you to look through that list if any more permission problems come up.

Now, I realize that this is for 10.5 but I will assume that these transfer over to 10.6.

Here is one more to look at even though it was written before 10.6
About Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions feature
