    Is there any meaning behind Kernel panic text? I've been getting this one almost daily and I have no idea what it means, any ideas?:


    Unresolved kernel trap (cpu 0): 0x300 - Data Access DAR=0x00000010 PC=0x00072050
    Latest crash info for cpu 0:

    They are pretty random in when they occur, part of what makes them so annoying :rolleyes:

    Dude, if you're panicking everyday like that it's time clean-up your OS install a little.

    I've seen a kernel panic maybe twice since September, on all of the machines at work and at home.

    Backup your docs, format your drive and start clean...please!

    I may try that Rower, unfortunately I'm beginning to think that this is some sort of problem inherent to Rev.A B&W G3s.

    Interesting thought...can you tell me why?

    The three B&W G3s we have at work are running it just fine...

    I've read a lot of reports of people with Rev.A B&Ws that crash constantly. Some of them seem fine while others are finicky about everything. People have documented cases with constant kernel panics/freezes with causes that range from faulty motherboards to bad processors. The Rev.A Motherboard is the b*tchiest motherboard Apple produced and can be oversensitive to a little problem that another computer would ignore.
