    One of my G4 powermac's at work is giving us the following problem:

    Every once in a while I get the following message in 12 languages:
    "you need to restart your computer hold down the power button for several seconds or press the restart button, 00:30:65:A7:ZE:DR,"

    in OSX 10.1.5 I used to get a kernel panic but since upgrading to Jaguar I get the above message, it is sporadic and not related to a single action or program.

    also when giving the sundown command it almost always happens.

    I have reinstalled a clean OSX.2 system but still the same problem persists!

    anyone having the same problem anyone has any tips?

    Fancy Kernel Panic

    All I know that this new screen you get still is a kernel panic, apple just included this new screen instead of having black&white unix text coming up... I think they thought it'd look better (I wonder why, I kinda liked the old style).
