Repair possible?

Check it out. Fix permissions on the disk. It looks like a simple permissions error on the cache.
Thnks for he reply
Tried that, using disk itility, both while running from the HD and then from the repait partition too. No fix. :(
Deleted the system and user caches with Onyx, no fix. :(
I suspect the permissions are wrong for the com.apple.kextd file. but I do not know what they should be. :eek:

Actually I was thinking the cache at root ( / ) had the permission error.
So when you can it there were no errors at the cache folder?

  1. Open Terminal
  2. Type "sudo chown root:admin /"
  3. Then type "sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions" (this will force a rebuild of the kext cache)
