Hi, after kalyway dvd 10.5.2 tried kaly´s update combo pack. all i get is Still waiting for root device. also i get this message in yellow


Failed to load extension com.orByte.driver.PCGenUSBEHCI



ive fixed permissions but didnt work..


i can get 10.5.2 to work perfectly. maybe that combo update is not right for me, but i cant find a way of updating any information would be appreciated.



pd. ive searched like a crazy, i dont complain about lack of information, but theres so much information is impossible to find something. most search results are new threads about people complaining of answering the same thing 100000 times. or really old threads for 10.4.x that doesnt work for me.


pd2. i dont like posting for problems, realy hate it but im desperate


Tx in advance
