Hi Chun Nan, Thanks for creating this great kernel extension! I don't use PCMCIA cards personally, but your kexts saved me from the 10 minute boot time problem on every single install so far I share a similar experience with Panda_N_Shark and danillll. I installed the leopard 10.5.6 version of IOPCMCIAFamily.kext and it caused kernel panic on my HP 8510w running iPC 10.5.6. I'll post a screenshot of the panic shortly. Please find attached a screenshot of my kernel panic. I've seen quite a few kernel panics in my time but this one is really strange. No error messages and no stack trace at all. When I booted with "-v -f" it just freezes but without giving any errors. When I boot without flags I just get a black screen after the white apple screen. I've also typed up the entire screen since the picture wasn't clear. npvhash=4095 hi mem tramps at 0xffe00000 PAE enabled 64 bit mode enabled Darwin Kernel Version 9.6.0: Mon Nov 24 17:37:00 PST 2008; root; xnu-1228.9.59~1/RELEASE_I386 standard timeslicing quantum is 10000us vm_page_bootstrape: 510320 free pages and 13968 wired pages mig_table_max_displ = 79 Replacing extension "com.apple.iokit.IOPCCardFamily" with newer version (1.6.4 -> 3.3.0).
