I think he means single user mode (-s). Im not sure if you can modify permissions in single user mode, I know you cant edit files that are read-only (atleast I couldnt) which means you cant change their permissions either.


You can try if you want... type -s at the darwin prompt then at the cursor..


chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/kext.kext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/kext.kext


or to repair ALL kexts (wont work I bet)

chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/*
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/*
