Writing with TextEdit causes System Crash

  • Nobody/Anonymous


    after some successfull writes with command line tools and copying files i tried to edit files with TextEdit which causes a system crash. I first thought it was because the file was opened from the finder, but the same happens when using open to launch text edit. Other editors (I tied smultron) freeze when trying to write. The volume cannot be unmounted afterwards.

      I'll need to see the panic.log file. Also, what OS version? Intel or PPC? How big was the file?

      You may also want to give the updated driver in the following thread a try:

      I allready used the updated driver. I have a macbook (Intel, MacOS X 10.4.7). The file was small (10 byte)

      here is the panic.log

      It does the same thing to my system
      OS X 86 10.4.8
      it was a 2k file

      Will post my panic log when I boot back into OS X

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      My kernel panicked after using an iTunes library from the Linux partition. Crashed when I opened the library up.

    • Nobody/Anonymous

      It's the same panic message as I had on delete/empty trash in my post from 15 Jul, "System crashes when write enabled on 10.4.10". OS X 10.4.10, PPC, ext2fsx_dev 1.4d4.
