    I'm just switching over to OSX (to SR 2.2)-- a mac had never been my full-time machine before, and it seems as if today suddenly brought on a surge of kernel panics (the black box with 4 languages). Would connecting wired LAN at the same time airport in the presence of a wireless network cause this? Or, (the other change) could connecting an external drive [NTFS] cause it? Either way, the computer's quickly losing my trust.

    I've repaired disk permissions, but I don't imagine that was a cause (again, I don't really know much about this OS under the hood). I've seen people post logs of some sort up--where should I look for that?

    Thanks -- hopefully this is something software/compatibility related!

    Edit: Some of the crashes have come while using VLC; I am updating the software right now. Is anyone aware of bugs in that program that could cause this sort of thing?

    well it could certainly be one of the issues you describe. but we'll have to figure out whats causing it first to figure out how to make them stop.

    you should be able to find the logs in your Console, which is in Applications>Utilities

    Kernel panics can be caused by defective or poorly seated RAM. Were you playing large files in VLC when they occurred? It might be worth removing and re-seating your RAM a couple of times to eliminate this possibility.

    Is this what we're looking for?
    Also, I am running 10.4.10 with the Macbook Pro update

    if your using the new sr mb pro there is another thread on this. Basically it has to do with your wireless security. In my case changing from wpa to wep stopped causing the panics. Some people have had to disable wireless security all together.

    Well, in my case, I've been using WEP security seemingly without issue-- my last KP was a few weeks ago. Today, then, I ended up with three. I will try reseating my RAM once I can get access to some of those tiny screwdrivers at my parents' house.
