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?
