View Full Version : Kernal Panic at Startup

Jan 16, 2005, 02:10 PM
I have a PB 1.33 GHz, and I am running 10.3.7.

This morning, I tried to wake it up from sleep, and it seemed to be comatose. I did a hard restart, and it was very slow booting. I managed to login, but it was also very slow loading the desktop, and the hard drive was being much louder than usual. I tried to repair disk permissions, but the system locked up and the application was not responding.

I again did a hard reboot; however, this time I got to the white screen with the gray apple, and the system froze. I booted into single user mode and did fsck with the following result -

Incorrect block count for system entropy cache
(It should be 1 instead of 0)
Keys out of order
Rebuilding Catalog B-tree
The volume could not be repaired.

After typing reboot, I got a kernal panic on the white screen with the gray apple. I tried hard rebooting a few more times, and again I am getting kernel panics on the white screen with the gray apple.

Is this a system problem or could it be a dying hard drive. Thanks in advance for any help.

Could be a RAM problem (which caused a crash that mucked up your file system). Boot from your hardware test CD and run the extended test.
