    I read on the os x section that there may be some complications running azureus with leopard... can this be confirmed?

    I use this program with my torrents currently with tiger and would REALLY like it to work with leopard... any ideas?

    when i first started using it with lep, i was getting tons of kernel panics locking and crashing. now the only prob is that it sometimes becomes unresponsive when you try to quit it. i try not to do too much with my mbp while it's running.

    I got it running on my Imac and macbook, both running leopard, and i have only had one kernel panic and lock.
    I have been told that if you have it running in its own space it is stable, dont know this for sure as i have not tried.

    Only problem is it never quits, and sometimes causes a kernel panic if left on for a long period of time (8+ hours).

    Aside from that, seems stable for torrents and I get very high d/l speeds.

    No, you can strip on your own. :p

    What you meant was, "bear with me here....what is a kernel panic?" Note that kernel is spelled kernEl.

    I've just bought a MacBook Pro and has been running quite smoothly for a few days, but now I keep getting Kernal Panics! I noticed azureus was open at the time, and happened only when I was working with azureus.

    What is the best way to check this is the problem? Are there any other programs out there that don't cause this.

    I'm worried its not azureus but hardware instead. Is there anyway to find out?

    I had this problem too. Over a year running Tiger with zero kernel panics -- then, after installing Leopard, several kernel panics a day. I stopped using Azureus and switched to Transmission, and have not had any problems since.
