: Hard drive busy at all times

May 5th, 2005, 04:36 AM
Hi guys,

ever since I did a clean install of tiger on my new AL-PB15", strange things has been happening.

The hard drive has been always busy( for at least 5 hrs now), system monitor indicates that most of the resources are used by a program called "mds" user "root". Its CPU usage has always been 54-80%.

Restarting computer doesn't work either.

What is wrong with my PB? Is there a threat of virus or trojan?

plz help.

Problem solved after repairing disk permissions.

Turns out the permissions of some apps were messed up since I copied them from a backup folder on another mac.

Hope this could become useful infomation for ppl who are trying to install tiger.
