    I recently downgraded AppleUSBAudio.kext from version 10.6.3 to 10.5.6.
    (The reason for that is because there is a bug with the 10.6 versions of the AppleUSBAudio.kext with certain USB audio devices.)

    Anyways, I have to manually reload kext upon every restart.
    (sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext)

    I unloaded the 10.6 kext with kextunload, replaced it, and then reloaded the 10.5 kext and repaired permissions. Still I have to manually reload the kext at every restart.
    How can I keep the kext loading on startup? I've read the man page on kextload, but it didn't seem to give me any useful info about my case.

    There must be something obvious I have forgotten!

    After a bit more research it seems like the permissions won't get repaired at all.
    I've run three Permissions repairs now and they all says:

    Code:
    Repaired "System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext/Contents/CodeDirectory".
    Permissions differ on "System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext/Contents/CodeRequirements", should be lrwxr-xr-x , they are -rwxr-xr-x .
    Repaired "System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext/Contents/CodeRequirements".
    Permissions differ on "System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext/Contents/CodeResources", should be lrwxr-xr-x , they are -rwxr-xr-x .
    Repaired "System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext/Contents/CodeResources".
    Permissions differ on "System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext/Contents/CodeSignature", should be lrwxr-xr-x , they are -rwxr-xr-x .
    Repaired "System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBAudio.kext/Contents/CodeSignature".
    
    The permissions lrwxr-xr-x indicates it should be a symlink if I'm not mistaken?

    I could manually add a script that ran kextload at startup, but that isn't a good solution

    I'm still trying to get this fixed, there must be someone around here with similar issues?

    Yeah i have the issue... following the instructions on removing the ventrilo robot here and every time I restart I have to reload the kext :(

    I re-wrote these instructions with ome updates because of quarantines and setting the directory permissions.

    Bumping OPs post because I too have this issue.
