Re: os x kernel panics

I did some research, panther does indeed have kqueue().  Java and
Filesystem use it on 10.3.x.  There isn't much on Apple's dev website
about it, but it is in 10.3.x.  I believe it may be internal only, but
this is just based upon the fact that i can't find any dev docs that say
use kqueue(). 

One reference:

: Hi Phobos,

: Thanks!
