Pro Tools 9.0.6 update error?

Hi, I just updated to PT 9.0.6 and had the attached error message pop up. Has anyone seen this before? I fired up a session and everything seemed OK. I'm just wondering if I should worry about this and try to correct it. Any help you may give would be great. Thank you!

By the way, I'm on a Macbook Pro, Mac OS X 10.6.8.

Hmmm...attachment didn't work. It said "System Extension Cannot be used. The system extension '/System/Library/Extensions/DigiDal.kext' was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it...."

Kext cannot be used is usually an indication of one of two things.

Either the kext is of the wrong architecture (64 bit on 32 bit OS),

or the permissions haven't been set correctly.

If its a permissions error then you can repair permissions within disk utility, then restart.

If that doesn't help, open terminal and type
sudo kextload /system/library/extensions/Dididal.kext
and/or
sudo kextutil /system/library/extensions/Digidal.kext

That should give you a print out of any errors.




Hope that's helpful.

Thanks for the help! I did repair disk permissions, but it didn't specifically list this extension as being repaired. I'm not entirely sure what to make of that. I'm also not sure what to do with a print out of errors via your suggestion of using terminal

If you could elaborate on that, I'd appreciate it. Thanks again!
