Hello frustrated, what the below quoted code says is that #1, created a valid cache (that's good) #2 when it tried to update the symlink to point to it that process failed.
to resolve that error, from ether single user mode ( -s boot mode) or the recovery partition run this list of commands.
(CAUTION: both of these modes by default will give you SUDO access to the system be very carful what you type.)
Thanks, the links was useful. But I am not getting any solution. The tutorial there does not account for the fact that the user needs SUDO permissions.
I ran with sudo and here is what I get...(not what the OP of that tutorial gets)
This is so frustrating!!!KernelCache ID: C79B2CECB584A805F14556B0A116AE60 symlink("../../../PrelinkedKernels/prelinkedkernel", "/Volumes/MAC SSD/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache") failed 2 (No such file or directory) iMac:~ b$
Thank you so much
P.S. I even re-ran without sudo code and I followed the steps and still had no luck.
mount -uw /
rm -rf "/Volumes/MAC SSD/System/Library/Prelinkedkernel/prelinkedkernel"
touch "/Volumes/MAC SSD/System/Library/Extensions" && kextcache -system-caches "/Volumes/MAC SSD/"
kextcache -u "/Volumes/MAC SSD/"
this list of commands is slightly different from the ones in the aforementioned guide, but they do basically the same thing.
the differences are that I took your Volume name to customize them, and that I forced the rebuild of your system cache after deleting the prelinkedcache. this has the effect of having the kext cache manager look for where these files are missing from and rebuilding them in my experience.
