    Default kernel_trap with S3 (v.2) and Intel Core 2 duo

    Hello,

    In attachment you can find both, the kernel panic error message and my full hardware details.
    With 10.5.* the notebook never had issues with OSX, but with 10.6.3 (S3/v2), it worries on start up.
    With -x I can boot properly, but miss some non-save-mode features :-/

    The kernel panic message does not really help since google does not know about the issue. So I hope, you heard of this "kernel_trap" already.

    Thanks for help

    Question

    What is the boot parameter -x doing in detail?
    Maybe i can try to find out which of the special params, that -x is overwriting, allows me to boot in safe-mode to find out how to boot properly without -x...

    Default

    Starting up into Safe Mode does several things:

    It forces a directory check of the startup volume.
    It loads only required kernel extensions (some of the items in /System/Library/Extensions).
    In Mac OS X v10.3.9 or earlier, Safe Mode runs only Apple-installed startup items (such items may be installed either in /Library/StartupItems or in /System/Library/StartupItems; these are different than user-selected account login items).
    It disables all fonts other than those in /System/Library/Fonts (Mac OS X v10.4 or later).
    It moves to the Trash all font caches normally stored in /Library/Caches/com.apple.ATS/(uid)/ , where (uid) is a user ID number such as 501 (Mac OS X v10.4 or later).
    It disables all startup items and login items (Mac OS X v10.4 or later).
    Mac OS X v10.5.6 or later: A Safe Boot deletes the dynamic loader shared cache at (/var/db/dyld/). A cache with issues may cause a blue screen on startup, particularly after a Software Update. Restarting normally recreates this cache.
    Taken together, these changes can help resolve software or directory issues that may exist on the startup volume.

    Some features don't work in Safe Mode
    Safe Mode can be useful for troubleshooting. However, certain Mac OS X features do not work in Safe Mode. For example, you can't use DVD Player, capture video in iMovie, use audio input or output devices, or use an internal or external USB modem. The behavior of some devices such as an AirPort card may vary depending on computer and Mac OS X version.

    Safe Mode in Mac OS X v10.5 or later also disables Quartz Extreme (hardware accelerated graphics). Applications that depend on Quartz Extreme will not open, and the Mac OS X menu bar will appear solid even if "Translucent Menu Bar" is enabled in Desktop & Screen Saver preferences.

    Safe Mode in Mac OS X v10.6 or later also disables File Sharing access. This means you will not be able to mount Time Capsule disks or volumes being served by other computers running Mac OS X.
