Hi all,

i'm booting the system with the flag UseKernelCache=Yes without any problems, but when i look into Console i saw these messages:

it keeps displaying these messages for 26 times and then it stops.

what does it means? is kernel cache working properly or not?

thanks in advance

I suppose it's not functioning well.

You'd better rebuild kernel cache manually.

i've just runned from terminal these commands:

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel -all-loaded

 

Kernel file /mach_kernel does not contain requested arch: i386

and then this one:

it's weird because i'm using an extra usb audio card and it works very well, i don't understand what's the problem

 

 

edit: second line of my boot, after "loading darwin 10.8" is "No Kernel Cache File '/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/kernelcache' found"

 

edit 2: just rebooted the system without UseKernelCache=Yes, "no kernel cache file" line is gone, but the problem with IOUSBAttachedSCSI.kext remains

 

edit 3: i've removed IOUSBAttachedSCSI.kext from S/L/E and apparently i have no more weird messages in console (usb devices are still working properly). i've also re enabled usekernelcache=yes and now it seems to work

try this easy command.

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

i tried with that command before deleting IOUSBAttachedSCSI.kext without any results.

i actually don't know why i needed to remove that kext... what was it supposed to do? manage scsi devices?
