Kext is not authentic (Resolved)

I modified the info.plist files in the AppleAC97Audio.kext plugins (that i needed to) and when I went to do a kextload on the base kext, it says "Is not authentic (Please Check Owner/Permissions)

 

The files are still 664, and root:wheel so... nothing has changed owner/perm wise.. but It refuses to load...

 

Is there something I need to do... or do I just need to replace the kext and try again.. (if so.. where on the instalation DVD is the kext stored?? I can't find it anywhere)

 

Thanks for your help.

Just run Disk Utility and repair permissions on your OSX partition.

 

 

 

It restored 9 files... (none of which were the kext) and the kext still fails..

 

 

 

permissions need to be 755

 

I'll try that now. but seeing as the default perms were 664 and are 664 on all the unmodded Info.plists... I'm not sure it will work.

 

 

 

*off to try*

the perms on the kext's are already 755, but just for s/g i chmoded them anyway to 755..

 

ls -l still says its 755.

 

I changed the Info.plist to 755 and verified this.

 

Still tells me Is not Authentic and won't load.

 

 

Any other Ideas?

My Broadcom kext started failing yesterday with the same message. I repaired perms with Disk Utility and still kept failing. I had to manually change perms and then that worked. Try this:

 

sudo su

cd /System/Library/Extensions

chown -R root:wheel AppleAC97Audio.kext

chmod -R 755 AppleAC97Audio.kext

cd /System/Library

rm Extensions.kextcache

rm Extensions.mkext

sync

reboot

 

Probably a couple of extra steps there towards the bottom that you don't need, but that should rule out the normal stuff.
