    At least 3 times, my BRAND NEW Macbook Pro (just upgraded to Lion from SL) gets Kernel Panics upon login (when it stops and says you have to restart your computer, right?) anyway, in the crash report, it mentions the Logmein Hamachi kext. Have there been any reports of hamachi crashing macs? I kinda need it, but I'm not sure what to do. :apple:

    Have you searched for other users having the same problem? Have you checked to see if the software developers were aware of any problem or had a fix?

    Personally I would go back to Snow Leopard, Lion just isn't ready for prime time.

    You seem to be giving bad advice to everyone having a problem with Lion, the fix isn't to go back to a older OS. Eventually you will need to upgrade as software will stop supporting it. There is almost always a fix to everything. To the OP, Try Repairing disk permissions in Disk utility.

    Its not bad advice, its good advice. Most people even before Lion warned about upgrading until .1 or .2 of a new release. And Lion is the worst one released. If its such bad advice why did other people already agree with me and say it saved them lots of grief?

    Because its the only answer they got, they didn't get an answer to how to fix it. What about Mac OS X Leopard? It had tons of problems with the release! What about Panther? Everyone complained about it when it was released. How about you actually look for a fix, people arnt asking if they should downgrade, and yes Its DOWNGRADING, you will always need to latest OS to use the Latest Software and features. The advice your saying is not helpful but rather ignorant. If you had a problem, it doesn't mean everyone else will.

    Does the crash report just "mention" it, or was it the thread that crashed? In any event, make sure you have a current, 64-bit version of their kext. As mentioned, contact the developer. While it's possible it is a Lion bug, I would wager it's a compatibility issue (meaning there were changes to Lion's API which were not (or incorrectly), complied with).

    You are going to have to live with it until the fix the problems in Lion or try to shoehorn Snow Leopard on it. Lion likes to kernel panic, I have access to 3 machines that do it that had a clean install.

    The fix is up to apple to fix it, not them. Apple doesn't provide you with the source code so you can fix it.

    And you are not comparing Leopard to Lion in terms of stability on release... there is no comparing the two.

    And no you should not always need to upgrade to the latest OS. How about all the people that hated vista and went back to XP, or Dell allowing them to by selling them downgrade rights? I bet you money there will be a 10.6.9 released. Microsoft still releases updates to Vista. I wonder why would they do that??? You might want to go tell them its not necessary.

    You said "Apple doesn't provide the source code for you to fix it"

    Well why should they? If you don't like lion get out of the Lion Forums.

    Yes I did, that is a fact. I did not suggest they should, I don't know why your asking me to explain why they should. Your reading comprehension skills need some work.

    Make me. :rolleyes:

    Did you check the logs and dumps? Did you report it to Apple? Have you tried a fresh install? There is NOTHING wrong with Lion, it is flawless, it must be your hardware! :rolleyes::p

    OK, I am done bagging on you now. There are issues with Lion and SL is still a very usable OS so if people need something a bit more solid until Apple can fix Lion then I don't see the problem.
