    Often see the following message on console:


    Sep 26 12:56:00 xxxx-xxxx com.apple.launchd[1] (com.apple.SystemStarter): Failed to count the number of files in "/System/Library/StartupItems": No such file or directory

    It doesn't seem to really hurt, but I am concerned.

    Have you verified that the folder exists? It should. If it's not there, create one and see if that addresses the issue.

    I was in the Apple store today and the Lion systems there have the folder. I have no idea why the folder isn't on my iMac. I just looked again and the folder is there on the MBP I'm using now.

    I'll create the folder and see what happens.

    On this MBP the folder exists, but is empty.

    Apple screwed up on a recent update and deleted that folder.
