6 kernel panics in 2 days
freddy don't die on me!!!!!!!!
time to reinstalll
yeah i'll get around to that once it finally bites it.
mine had a bad stick of ram that kept coming up with kernel panics everyday
it forced me to buy a 1.67ghz PB
i dont understand kernel panics. ive never gotten one on my pb, what causes em? how do you fix it?
it could be either software or hardware, only way to know is to do an erase and install. you still under warranty?
It's probably bad RAM. I installed a 512 stick, and immediately started getting panics. As soon as I removed the RAM and replaced it with another stick, haven't had a panic since.
Basically it's when the OS shits itself. The whole computer just freezes or shuts down. It's kind of equivalent to the BSOD on Windoze.
I'm no computer expert, but I know that with bad RAM, if the OS makes a 'call' to a bad section on your RAM chip at the wrong time, the whole OS craps it's pants and shuts down.
time to buy a good quality gig stick i suppose.
i took it out and it hasn't shat on me yet.
however... 10.4 with 256mb =
Dude, run memtest on that stick asap
While I am no computer expert, that's correct. (partly) It's when the OS looks for something critical that isn't there. Or it thinks it's not there.
If it's Not actually there, then you have a software problem.
If it thinks it not there 9 times out of 10 you have a hardware problem.
