I was thought about that, and was wondering if I needed to update
BootX to handle a universal binary, but that doesn't explain why the
ppc-only kernel doesn't boot, either. I will fiddle more with the
kextcache stuff after lunch. I built BootX, but am not exactly sure
what to do with the files it produces.
I was careful to put the kernel back into the wheel group after
copying it to /, since it seems to get changed to root,admin in the
copying process. any other gotchas I should look for?
