No More Kernel Panics


Or at least that's the hope. Apple released a major update of Leopard (10.5.2) which promises, among other things, to "resolve certain kernel panics" associated with the Airport card.

I have had three kernel panics so far (Nish, the Macbook, is a bit over three months old), and all are Airport-card related, from the very little that I could gather from the panic logs. If you're running Leopard, you can view your panic logs in /Library/Logs/PanicReporter. 

Apparently the Macbook is not so cozy with non-Apple routers (which is a good justification for buying a Time Capsule). I am unable to replicate the kernel panics, though, and it has been driving me nuts (the inability to reproduce the error, not the error itself - it's the dv engineer in me).

Anyway, I hope I won't be seeing the black screen of horror anytime soon, or else it's a trip to the Apple store for me.
