    newbie queston: repair permissions for 10.4.10 update?
    Hi all, new to Macs and I wanted to download the new 10.4.10 update. I was reading that people are recommending to "repair permisions" before and after download.

    questions:
    1) what does "repair permissions" mean?

    2) I went to the disk utilities app as directed and I saw on the left pane "149.1 GB ST... and right under that indented was "Macintosh HD". I am guessing the first line is describing my actual physical HD? Which one do I need to perfom this "repair permissions" to?

    Thanks all for your time. Looking forward to learning more from you guys, so thanks in advance for putting up with my questions!!!

    I also read about doing this and guess what, I did this when it came to installing 10.4.10, and I still have the problems others are reporting. My suggestion to you is if your Mac is working fine now, I would not risk running the 10.4.10 update! Wait until Apple release a fix and people start to report the problems are gone.
