10.5: Solve a repair permissions issue after 10.5.8 update
Authored by: Klaus1 on Aug 13, '09 02:34:33PM
Much of which misses the point:

Permissions you can ignore on 10.5:

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1448?viewlocale=en_US

using 'should be -rw-r--r-- , they are lrw-r--r--' as an example, you will see the that the permissions are not changed, but the | indicates a different location. This is because an update to Leopard changed the location of a number of system components.

As regards System Update I tend to agree: it can be flakey. Best to download updates direct from Apple - and to keep backup copies.
