    So... I was partitioning my hard drive with Boot Camp to set up Windows. While partitioning, I got a kernel panic. My Mac continues to be usable, thank god... and I was able to repair the damage done. However, the kernel panics continue whenever I try to partition. Here is the log, for anyone interested.

    I've done some research, and found this.

    Macs are supposed to defragment files automatically. The filesystem is supposed to do that. However, the process to defragment files is defaulted to about 3-5 AM local time. Use a program like iDefrag or TechTool Pro 4 (not deluxe, the one that comes with AppleCare) to defragment your hard drive, then try again. Unfortunately, these are both paid programs. I have yet to find a free mac defragmentation program.
