I have tried 2 different USB hubs. The first was an internal hub in an PCI-e slot.

I had to remove it due to regular kenel panics.

 

I then tried an external hub, and have similar results, although less ofter.

 

I've had to remove that as well.

Unfortunately, the PPC based G-5 quad core only has 3 USB ports on the back, so it's lacking.

 

Any suggestions?

Am I doing something wrong?

    Is this a powered hub (which it should be)?

    So, did you plug it in - powered?

    Why would an internal USB hub, with nothing plugged into it, cause constant kernel panics?

    No idea, but it seems your system doesn't like it!

    Glad you got it fixed!
