    Exclamation Repair Permission Problems
    I ran verify permissions today and tried to repair them but none of them were repairable. I have attached a screen shot. Do I need to be worried that they were changed and now can't be repaired?

    You might want to give Apple Care a ring for the rest of those messages but at least this error message, Mac OS X 10.5: Disk Utility's Repair Disk Permissions reports a permissions issue with ARDAgent is said to not be cause for concern.

    Had a look with Google and disk permissions repair seems to be a fairly widespread issue with Leopard for now. No reports with actual problems that I can see up to now but it seems that what Tiger fixed after Panther, Leopard takes it back a step.

    From the best I can tell, all the rest of the changes occured with the update to 10.5.1 and should be nothing to worry about - same with the ARDAgent.

    Have all of the same ones on mine after that update.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    After about 20-30 mins on hold I finally got someone. He thinks something happened when I did a clean install of Leopard. He mentioned that I possibly get my Mac looked at.

    Since I upgraded to Leopard, I have Mighty Mouse, Mail.App, Parallels and a few issues like those.

    I will update more when I get off the phone with him.

    I just got off the phone.

    The final conclusion was when I did the 10.5.1. update something happened and caused things to possibly corrupt. I am taking to MBP to the local authorized guy tomorrow to have him run advanced disk utility programs since I don't have my Leopard discs. If he finds something out, I will have to reinstall Leopard and pray for no problems.

    The apple care guy was really patient and took time to look things up for me. Apple care is awesome!!

    had the same problems
    exactly the same problems, found the solution on apple support forum.
    the answer is to download http://discussions.apple.com/thread....5322&tstart=90

    download and run the standalone 10.51 update the secure.log message is caused by the weekly cron task being run and is normall.

    I downloaded the standalone 10.5.1 and installed it. I'll see what happens. If it still acts up I'll give the Mac guy a call.

    Decided to give it a try myself. Downloaded the standalone 10.5.1 update and installed it on top of the regular 10.5.1 update I had already done.

    All of the "Warning: SUID" comments are no longer there on a permissions repair except for the ARDAgent.

    Installing the stand alone seems to help. My MBP is actually faster now and doesn't lag when using Safari and Adobe programs.

    Excellent! Reinstalling an update will sometimes fix quirky behaviour. I dunno why, maybe a teeny glitch in the download on the first try or something...
