10.6.8 & Kona Kernal Panics
on Jun 24, 2011 at 9:59:27 pm

Hi guys,
Just a heads up that 10.6.8 caused crashes and kernal panics on our 2.8 8 core mac pro w/ Kona 3. We uninstalled and reinstaalled drivers with no effect. I'm going to assume that new drivers will be out soon, but as for now we are running without drivers for our Kona 3.

We also tried the beta drivers as a last ditch, to no effect.

Gotcha. Sorry, I was relaying info from my editor. He deleted the drivers and all was well. He didn't get the note to call until you guys had already closed for the day. Thanks!

I'm sorry - we deleted the drivers and all is well, except that we can't use our Kona 3. So, I guess it's not really that well. We're out of town till Tuesday, but I'll try to get our crash log sent in.

I actually just joined the community here to report the exact same problem.

Below is the kernel panic message if it helps anyone troubleshoot.

Adam, have you updated the firmware on the cards also? - this line appears to say you are working K3 v8.0 driver

note;
I have not downloaded or tried any of the new AJA software release.

The issue appears to be a conflict only when systems are updated to OS X 10.6.8. AJA will look into this matter more on Monday. Until then, it might be best to not update a KONA 3 system to OS X 10.6.8; other OS versions appear to work correctly with the KONA 3. Please contact AJA via email and attach a copy of your System Profile to the email. We are sorry for this inconvenience. In the majority of cases, an OS update will not impact the operation of an AJA product, but in this case it appears that the update does.

Hi,

Just updated my OS to 10.6.8. I have a 12-core MacPro.
The firmware on my Kona3 is the 64-bit 2008 release. (Latest)
I upgraded to the 9.0.1 Kona drivers before upgrading to 10.6.8.

I can't say that this will work for everyone. But it works for me.

bob.

The following information has now been posted to the AJA support page for the KONA 3:

Important Note: AJA recommends when using the KONA 3 with the KONA 9.0.1 driver under Mac OS X 10.6.8, that you boot your Mac in 64 bit mode. Please refer to the Apple support documentation for advice on how to do this properly:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3770
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3773

We apologize for the inconvenience that the 10.6.8 update has been for some KONA 3 users.  An updated driver will also be forthcoming.

[AJA Sales Department] "Important Note: AJA recommends when using the KONA 3 with the KONA 9.0.1 driver under Mac OS X 10.6.8, that you boot your Mac in 64 bit mode. "

Unfortunately there are some Kernel Extensions that are 32 bit only that we need. Plus, the first MacPro systems cannot boot in 64 bit mode at all, since their EFI is 32bit only. So hopefully an updated version will be released soon…

AJA has just released a new 9.0.3 software version for KONA users that solves a possible Kernel Panic problem for users working with OS X 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard). Other additional improvements are included with this new version as well.

You can find the new software version for your AJA KONA product at:
http://www.aja.com/support/index.php

Please be sure to read the Release Notes document for your particular KONA product for more details.

Again, we apologize for any issue you may have experienced when using AJA products under Mac OS X 10.6.8.

This thread helped make my morning less crappy.... THANK YOU AJA for making this updated driver available, and for the OP for posting his issue of the kernal panic or I would probably still be troubleshooting things.

Since moving from the linear editing world and re-training on Avid in 1998, I learned to never do any upgrades in mid-project. Today was a perfect example of how I will stick to that mantra.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.
