    Hello I am pretty new to the forums but I installed snow leopard on an 2008 iMac 2.4 ghz, 3gb of ram and 250gb hard drive on September 1, 2009 and had no problems shutting down. Then on Wednesday when I shut down it goes into a kernel panic and tells me to restart. When I go into the other user account it does not do that. I have a picture of the error log that i got when I started the computer up to submit to Apple. Can someone please help.

    I have reset PRam, repaired permissions, and reinstalled Snow Leopard but recovered it from a Time Machine Backup. I do not know what to do.:(

    Does anyone else have this problem and know a solution?

    Thanks in advance to all you smart forum viewers:eek::eek:

    Looks like a driver problem. It seems the a program called DoubleCommand is not compatible with Snow Leopard.

    Shutdown issues - SL Clean Install

    I did the clean install routine ....

    Hold down "C" to boot into installer.

    Utilities/Disk Utility to erase/repartition

    Installed SL

    Issues on shutdown

    1st Shutdown - failed to completely shutdown - left a 'ghost' image of desktop background on screen - seemed frozen

    Forced Shutdown with PWR Button

    2nd Shutdown - got a screen with spinning pinwheel - seemed like forever

    Will do another shutdown/reboot and check back here.
