Error message in OSX Console – Cant create kext cache under / – owner not root

I was getting an error in the console:

com.apple.kextd[10]: Cant create kext cache under / - owner not root

This can be fixed by doing the following command:

sudo chown root:admin /

Note, you will almost certainly be prompted for a password, normally this is your Mac login password, but it may be a specific user with Administrator privileges’ password you need to enter
