And... Permissions from iTunes 11.1.1 are still NOT REPAIRABLE.

:mad:

Apple should ditch permission repair if it's not important at all.

Additionally, why is the Mach_Kernel now visible in the root directory?


Because Apple doesn't do Quality Control anymore! ;)

Put this in Terminal and it will become invisible again.

sudo chflags hidden /mach_kernel

As long as you don't expect Mavericks to be 'flawless out of the gate'.
