== Platform Specifics Issues ==
+=== OS X
+
+You will need to install the EmotivNullDriver.kext on OS X for
+software to be able to access the EPOC. To do this, copy the
+osx/EmotivNullDriver.kext directory to
+/System/Library/Extensions/. Once this is done, reboot.
+
+This will blacklist the emotiv from the HID Manager so it can be read
+by Emokit. No telling what this will do in conjunction with the Emotiv
+OS X drivers, I haven't tested that yet.
