comment Howto resize copied HFS+ partition above original size (320GB)?
Sorry, its a long time ago, so I fixed it by copying using Disk Utility's "Restore" option instead. As far as I remember the new volume was initially resized to the full size of the new disk. However, I am still puzzled why the ddrescue copy could not be resized which is why I left the question here.

comment After hard drive upgrade, battery not charging?
@macaco Sorry for being a little harsh, but you assume the questioner does not have the necessary skills to replace a hard drive. This assumption might be right, but I don't see how your answer helps. I guess the questioner would find out herself to take the Mac to Apple if all else fails. An answer here should be something that possibly helps the person avoiding paying Apple (or others) for fixing the machine for her.

comment After hard drive upgrade, battery not charging?
I find this answer slightly arrogant. Replacing a hard drive inside a Mac should not cause problems. Try to reset the SMC (System Management Controller) as I have proposed in my answer to the question before spending a lot of money on Apple authorized repair.

comment How to resolve permissions errors on OS X Lion after Homebrew install
@iolsmit: I have the exact same problem. However, I don't see why /usr/local should belong to me instead when this machine has multiple admin users. Also, It is possible for me to write to the locations brew doctor is complaining about. Any other ideas?

comment Homebrew permissions & multiple users needing to brew update
I have the same problem and have changed group ownership and group permissions as suggested. brew doctor still complains that e.g. /usr/local/include is not writable even though I manually can verify that I can write to a file here (e.g. using echo "hello" > /usr/local/include/testfile). I am member of the admin group. Any ideas for debugging?

comment Are my permissions for /usr/local/ correct?
@CarminePaolino: Instead on chowning, I would suggest sudo chgrp -R admin /usr/local/ followed by sudo chmod -R g+w /usr/local/. This will allow all admin users to install using Homebrew without sudo just like admin users can drop new applications in /Applications in Finder.
