Kernel Panic

I just had a kernel panic. It happened pretty much at random as I was reading MacSurfer in Chimera. I’ve seen a few similar kernel panics in the last few weeks and it never writes a panic log to /Library/Logs.

Most likely it was caused by a KEXT rather than an application. The only third-party kernel extensions I have installed are Griffin Technology PowerMate, Kensington MouseWorks, and SmartDisk Tri Media Reader.

I suspect the Tri Media Reader driver, since it pre-dates Jaguar, while the other two are recent versions. As an experiment, I removed that extension and I’m now using my Lexar CF reader, which doesn’t require a driver.
