    Question problems with running disk utility in 10.3
    I'm trying to run the "verify disk permissions" under disk utility, since this seems like a good thing to do, and maybe repair any faults if there are any (I have been experiencing som wierd crashes lately)..

    but it just runs to about 40% and then it stops, and says that it cant continue (not any reason) and to try later. and then I either quit or start over again - but if I try again, same thing always happends..

    what can I do to solve this? and is it crucial to verify/repair disk permissions?

    Did you delete anything in your previous receipts folder? This will cause issues since previous receipts are what DU uses to verify permissions.

    Yes,...repairing permissions is 100% necessary.

    Uhm, well, I'm actually not quite sure where the Reciepts-folder is, so no, I probably haven't.. Any thing I can do manually to correct this, any settings in DU or something? Thanks for the advice so far.. :mac:

    Try booting to your OS Install CD/DVD. You can run DU right from the CD/DVD. You might have better luck that way.
