    Within the last 2 days my powermac g5 has crashed twice because of the update process. From what i've read this process is related to updating the filesystem on storage disks. Any idea what the underlying issue is or how I solve it? Having trouble finding info, anything I google with the process name is related to updated software. I have disks in both drive bays and a Sonnet PCIE SATA card with another two disks. Computer has 4gb of new ECC Ram. This setup hasn't had any issues since setting it up in December.

    Here is the crash log:

    I've seen KPs if the OS X installer/updater hit a bad sector/corruption on a HDD(s), my parents Intel iMac was sunk by a failing disk that didn't report any SMART errors so you never know until it happens. If you have a PPC Linux CD/DVD laying around you could check the SMART status via GParted. (OS X Disk Utility doesn't show raw stats)

    Would the sector have to be on the startup disk to cause that? 3 of the 4 disks (including the startup disk) are new with less than 3000 hours. The other disk has 26,000 hours. But according to SMART Utility (https://www.volitans-software.com/apps/smart-utility/) everything is fine. I know i'm on borrowed time with that old disk, nothing important is on it

    Going through the system log it seems like the SMART app is constantly checking the drives despite me telling it to only check once a day. I stopped that app and will see if this happens again. What linux distro do you use?

    Also are you guys using jumpers on your HD's to slow them down to lower SATA speeds. This machine is using SATA 6GB/s drives so even with the jumper they would go down to SATA 3GB/s which still is twice as fast as the powermac SATA 1.5GB/s. The drives currently have no jumpers and seem to work fine. Using WD Reds

    When doing OS X updates it usually runs a multi-step optimization(rebuilding databases), if it KP-ed during or exactly at the optimization point it'll be the boot drive but if it occurred a bit longer it could be any drive that you installed 3rd party programs that have used the OS X Installer(OS X Installer has a plist of alt-installed locations and that is part of the optimization of the databases)
    Did you format the drive by zeroing it when originally installing OS X? With some of the recent drives you're taking a huge risk of not doing so.

    I don't own a Power Mac but I've also experienced KPs/non-recoverable beachball of doom with external USB/Firewire HDDs if there is a bad sector/corruption. Sometimes you can run Disk Utility to verify/repair but other times you'll need something like Disk Warrior to rebuild the directory which is often the best option to avoid a total reformat when its just corruption. If you do have bad sectors it might require zeroing the drive with 3-passes so the drive's firmware can remap usable sectors & rule out any surrounding bad sectors--the extra passes are a precaution.

    Lubuntu LTS has GParted, there is a menu for drive info which should display detailed/raw SMART data--haven't used Linux on a PPC machine in awhile.

    When I say update process I mean a the process name titled "update" in activity monitor. I have not been installing any software updates on the machine. In the crash reporter it says "BSD process name corresponding to current thread: update" The computer is a file and VPN server so applications are only on the startup drive.

    Did a long SMART test on all my drives and they came back fine (2+ hours per drive). Haven't had any issues with it today so fingers crossed.

    Automated scheduled update process does check the OS plist/database of previous updates, its possible booting to Linux then booting back forced OS X to re-verify the journaled state which is supposed to be a mini-safety net from KPs/hard shutdowns from a non-responsive system state.

    When it comes to old drives once you reach 5 years of near 24/7 usage the reliability curve drops quite a bit, Western Digital & Hitachi/HGST typically can push 8-10 years max before something internally contaminates the platter(pieces of the head parking ramp or platter coating separation).

    Thank you for helping me clear that up! Appreciate you insight. Replacing that drive is definitely on my to-do list
