Chapter 4 System Maintenance

Since maintenance kits are currently not available in FireWolf OS X PE 9, we will talk about how to repair disk permissions and rebuild kext caches in this chapter via command line tools.

Repair Disk Permissions

This feature is provided by RepairPermissions. You can find detailed information on its release page.

Please open the terminal via the launcher.

Type RepairPermissions --repair /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD and press the Enter key.

Note that --repair is followed by the mount point of your target partition. It may not necessarily be Macintosh HD.

We recommend you to drag the partition from Path Finder to the terminal, so that special characters can be escaped automatically.

Rebuild Kext Caches

This feature is provided by the native kextcache tool. You can find detailed information on its man page.

Please open the terminal via the launcher.

Type kextcache -i /Volumes/Macintosh\ HD and press the Enter key.

Note that -i is followed by the mount point of your target partition. Again it may not be Macintosh HD.

We recommend you to drag the partition from Path Finder to the terminal, so that special characters can be escaped automatically.
