possible solution for Repair Permission problem in OS X 10.3.9.

This is a possible workaround for Disk Utility with latest iTunes (6.0.2, 6.0.3) on OS X 10.3.9.

Disk Utility has "Lost Connection" with Disk Management tool


  1. Move iTunes onto the Desktop.
  2. Run Disk Utility
  3. Go to HD > Library > Receipts and trash all iTunes .pkg files EXCEPT for iTunesX.pkg and iTunesPhoneDriver.pkg
  4. empty Trash.
  5. move iTune from Desktop back to 'Applications'.

This is based on this post at Apple Discussions.
