Everytime I try to launch OnyX ... my entire system locks up. I have to hard reboot. Thanks though!

I'm still having problems. I'm trying to edit a .plist file and it still says I don't have permission.

I cannot seem to read a cd that was burned by my brother that has MP3's. I am able to read a regular music CD so I believe the optical drive is fine and that the CD is perfect as he just burned the disk. Running El Capitan. I just ran the onyx disk permission repair

After repairing permissions, why can't I copy a file to /usr/lib?

My computer has an SSD and runs Mac OS X 10.11.3 El Capitan and has Onyx 3.1.4 and I had problems with sudo not working anymore due to permissions. I tried Onyx's repair permissions feature since it's gone from Disk Utility. It appeared to be working and the progress bar gradually reached about halfway but now it's stopped moving and has been stuck there, and it has been running for fully TWO HOURS, much longer than you said in this video. I am trying to be patient and it has not given me any error messages. I figure maybe I should just let it keep running for a day and if it is still stuck at the same point I'll reinstall El Capitan... just wanted to let you know about my experience with this. El Capitan's reinstaller (version 10.11.3) is most of the way downloaded, 5.37 gigs out of 6.19. I guess I will just reinstall El Capitan. Good thing I have enough disk space. Hopefully that will work because Onyx isn't cutting it. Oh and I can't repair permissions from Terminal because sudo is broken and now Terminal itself is broken too!

great vid! how do you repair permissions for external drives? thanks
Ceadd L (2 years ago)
+shakh94 hmmm, good question. You can only repair disk permissions for OS disks (the primary harddrive containing el capitan) External disks dont require permission repairs unless your running an operating system from it. Anyways, i have another tutorial showing how to repair disk permissions with terminal, if your not afraid of some code i would check it out! Just make sure you direct it to the external an not the primary drive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QfCTc5zEOEc

Thanks for taking the time (and effort) to upload this helpful video. I'm sold. Regards.

+Ceadd L It did not come as a surprise to me that you are Canadian. Such good manners and disposition. Can't wait to go there again (been about 8 times inc U.S. which we also like). Now about 24 hours has passed I've run this software on my iMac and her Macbook Pro. Noticeable improvement on each machine so thanks again! All the best for 2016 Ceadd! Keep up the great work!

Your welcome :) thank you for taking the time to comment! Honestly, I do this not just because technology is my passion but I also like helping and teaching people. I'm glad you could watch this video an walk away with something from it, even if it's just information or an opinion. Your the perfect example of why I keep it up. Thank you. Cheers from Canada!
