10.5.7 give me a kernel panic too
I don't know your setup but I'm sure you have HDAenabler, don't you
keep your audio kext except replace HDAenabler with this one:
(I didn't make this I just found it in this forum...)
Reboot w 132
Install AppleHDA.kext v.1.6.2a37 (original 10.5.6 previous back-up) w Kext Helper
Reboot with -v -f
All works fine again!
