A fix for G4 iBook kernel panics caused by AirPort cards
Authored by: SuperCrisp on Oct 08, '09 08:30:23AM

I've never had this issue, and I'm not sure if it would work to simply remove the airport card, but I do want to note that it's dead easy to do so. It's under the keyboard, and what you need to do is obvious.

A fix for G4 iBook kernel panics caused by AirPort cards

Yeah this is a terrible fix probably causing problems with other system updates. I've fixed laptops for years and 9/10 kernel panics are caused by the card just not being seated correctly... just remove and reseat the card. If the card has genuinely failed then remove it, don't remove useful kernel extensions (would you leave failng RAM/ HD running?)
