I was wondering how you are ment to add .kext files to mac os x kalyway that is already installed??!!


Copy them into the /System/Library/Extensions directory then you can either use kextload Added.kext to load without rebooting or if needing to reboot for it to load properly you need to clear the caches and when booting hit the F8 key to get to Darwin boot loader where you can type in then hit enter key -f to force the reloading/caching of all the .kext on the system, you want to do this even if it will load without a reboot as when you reboot it will only load the .kext that are in the cache.


To remove the caches as root in a Terminal window use the following.


 rm -r /System/Library/Extensions/Caches
rm -r /System/Library/Caches
rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
