    That's the error I got from the (Mac OS has recovered from a serious error bit) I actually had to KPs, one after 10.5.3 randomly and then one at the login screen after that KP.

    First one(s) so I'm a bit jittered, any worries?

    I'm getting them now too. I think it's time capsule if you have that. I uninstalled timecapsulescheduler and it seems fine. for now.

    What was your error message? I had time machine set up but it was to a local drive, I have turned it off and haven't KP since (I KPd again after I posted that)

    I also had Firefox 3 so I'm using Safari now, cleaned the cache with Onyx, and stopped using a media server thing and so far so good.

    I don't recall my error message, but I do recall seeing cache in there somewhere. Same error every time I crashed. Each time i was attempting to do a backup. i can enter time machine and see all my things just fine. The second i attempt to start a backup, after a few seconds, crash.

    Also had the crash happen when i attempted to skip the checking volumes prompt when you manually mount the sparsebundle. I figured i would try to mount this again and let it finish on its own.

    I'll grab that message the next time this happens.

    I had a Kernel Panic after installing 10.5.3 also. OS X was starting in verbose mode and I saw something about Cisco VPN trying to attach to vmnet 8 or maybe vmnet 0

    While installing the 10.5.3, I had kernal panic also. I had to force restart by pressing down the power button. But after I did that, it finished installing and restarted again. So far there is no problem but it scared me.

    Well I haven't kernal panicked since that third one, so it leads me to believe either

    1. Clearing the cache
    2. Stopping Medialink
    3. Stop using Firefox Beta

    Seemed to work, I'd say that in order of how likely it is. Check your system preferences for any third party things, try clearing cache with Onyx.

    I don't think It's Firefox since one happened at the login screen, the others I had Firefox open, but I'm just saying try it as a last ditch effort.

    Wow that lasted a whole 2 days!!!

    God this update sucks, is there a way to go back to 10.5.2?

    Kernal Panics, bad Wifi, no improvements.

    Since installing 10.5, I have had my first kernel panic, copying of my camera's SD card locks up Finder (repeatedly, even after reboots) and things are just generally unstable (app crashes, etc).

    I have fixed permission, but to no avail. MP Early 2008 with 8 GB or RAM.

    I just archived and installed and will avoid using 10.5.3, and any future Apple updates past 10.5.2 (maybe even .1, I remember .2 slowing my boot time down big time) until I know they'll work well.

    Getting ready to re-install...

    -
    I'm throwing in the towel. It's not that "I can't take it anymore", it's that I just dont have the time to play this silly game anymore. I have uninstalled apps, fonts, etc, til I am blue in the face.:( Nothing fixes mine. After about an hour, it happens again. Kernel Panic, and rebooting is the only option.

    I've been up and down the safari/firefox road. back and forth on the "heat/fan/issues", over to the under/over/clocking place. I'm DONE! :mad:

    I am going to start over completely, with a clean install, and not upgrade past 10.5.1. (That was the last time I had a normal computing experience on this MBA):mad:;)

    i had nothing but problems with 10.5.3.. I had to send my intel iMac in to be repaired.. not only did the update fry my HD it also damaged my logic board.. The update cost me $900.. good thing i was still under the manufacture warranty (which they were reluctant to honor).. I guess people are having problems downloading this update wirelessly.. idk, thats what i've heard..

    **If your having problems, take it in to apple (you have a 1 year manufacturer warranty on parts and labor)..

    I now have 10.5.0 and will not update until 10.6

    So what have we learned?

    -
    I hate that you had to go through all of THAT! I guess I should count myself as lucky, since I was able to fix mine by re-installing the OS. I did a clean install. I just decided to start over. And this time, I will be more careful about ALL updates... Apple and others...

    It will be a LONG time before I move past OS 10.5.1, which works just fine for now...:)
