Re: os x kernel panics

hi -

for phobos, i've attach a panic log with 3 kernel crashes (10.3.9 current patches, installed the general package downloaded from the link on the website on the mac osX install directions page)

for roger, i see this under osX when launching tor - perhaps it's just bad verbage but it seems like it says its using kqueue:
May 20 08:20:53.850 [notice] Tor v0.1.0.7-rc. This is experimental software. Do not rely on it for strong anonymity.
May 20 08:20:53.858 [notice] Initialized libevent version 1.1 using method kqueue


Attachment: panic.log.gz
Description: GNU Zip compressed data

Hi Phobos,

What version of Tor was this? Tor 0.0.9.x doesn't use kqueue; to my
knowledge OS X 10.3.x does not implement kqueue; and Tor links
libevent 1.1 which detects and disables kqueue on 10.4.x because 10.4.x
implements an api that is different from every other kqueue on earth.

So, are you doing this on a Tor 0.1.0.x where x != 7-rc? If so, you should
upgrade. :) If you're using 7-rc, can you tell us the log messages when
Tor starts up, that say what polling method libevent has decided to use?

Also, you say you could trigger these panics on Tor It might
be nice to compare the symbols you find for these panics, since if
they reference kqueue also, perhaps you are not lining up your symbols
