    I can't install any drivers at the moment. Every time I try to install any driver from a DMG file, I get the above error message. It's happening with my audio driver, and its also happening with the driver for a screen capture piece of software. This makes me think that the MacOS driver (kext) system has been corrupted somehow.

    Note: This started happening after I started playing with kextunload, and kextload. I used these commands because I have a strange piece of hardware (long story) that requires me to load and unload drivers without rebooting. Once or twice when I called "kextload", the computer crashed and destroyed a HD.

    How can I find out what is going on? Do DMG files leave any logs or anything on the hard drive that would help me diagnose the problem?

    You messed up something. Undo what you did from your backup. OH, you don't have a backup, sorry.
