Apple has released the
Repair Privileges Utility, a software application intended for Mac OS X 10.1.5 users who may be experiencing specific problems related to file permissions.
Developed specifically for Mac OS X 10.1.5, the utility resolves the following issues, according to Apple: “An error of type -192” alert message in Disk Copy when disk images fail to become available. “An error of type -108” alert message in Print Center when spooling print jobs. “You are running Classic without superuser (root) Privileges” alert message when trying to start up Classic and the System Folder is blessed. An Admin user cannot drag files to a folder to which they should have write access, for example, the Applications folder. Files are unexpectedly locked and cannot be unlocked in the Finder.
More details about the utility’s use and download links are available from the link above.
