    Question Help with permissions in Panther Wanted
    Hi everyone I'm new here, but I hope that someone will help me even so!!

    When repairing permissions using the startup disk in 10.3.4 (or even earlier versions of Panther!) I keep getting the same message on the screen.

    ("We are using special permissions for the file or directory ./System/Library/Filesystems/cd9660.fs/cd9660.util. New permissions are 33261 Permissions differ on ./System/Library/Filesystems/cd9660.fs/cd9660.util, should be -rwxr-xr-x, they are -rwsr-xr-x. The privileges have been verified or repaired on the selected volume")

    Oh no they haven't!!!! Because the next time I try to repair the permissions I get exactly the same message, what gives??!!

    I don't really understand all this but I do try, as I've been a faithful Mac user for years. I'm running 10.3.4 on a PowerMac G4 MDD.

    Thanx in advance.

    Regards

    Here is what Apple says about itů

    You may safely ignore a message that contains "permissions are 33261". This document applies to Mac OS X 10.2.2 or later.

    In Disk Utility (Mac OS X 10.2.2 through 10.2.8), you see the message: "We are using special permissions for the file or directory ./System/Library/Filesystems/hfs.fs/hfs.util.
    New permissions are 33261"

    In Disk Utility (Mac OS X 10.3.3 or later), you may see the message: "We are using special permissions for the file or directory ./System/Library/Filesystems/cd9660.fs/cd9660.util.
    New permissions are 33261"

    This is a status message and not a cause for concern. You may safely ignore it.
