Just for reference:

I recently had the displeasure of re-installing my OS (10.6).
However I stumbled across a problem when using the latest universal drivers from MOTUís website which are currently at version 1.5.0 (At the time of writing).

During boot, the machine would kernel panic.
If the 828 was turned off and I booted up, the machine would boot up fine until the 828 was turned on.. then Iíd get a kernel panic again.

The important parts of the kernel panic are:

0xffffff805d71bfa0 : 0xffffff80002c4597

Mac OS version:

Kernel version:

So anyway, it transpires that the current 1.5 drivers throw up some sort of dependancy conflict.

The solution? Downgrade to the 1.4.9 drivers which no longer appear to be on MOTUís website.

For convenience sake, Iíve included the driver in a zip file below.
