It's a sad day (also a wasted day) as I have concluded that my G5, only a few months after @care has expired, seems to be taking its last breaths. It started a week or so ago as I routinely leave it on overnight to keep its drives available to the network. It just started freezing. On restart it would just hang on blue. Reset the pram and back up and running until a few hour go by and then frozen again. Restart to blue. Reset Pram... Then came the Kernel panics. Having just recently upgraded to Leopard I though I would revert to Tiger (under which it ran this way for most of its life without a single problem that I can remember) and when I put in the install cd and held down the c key - kernel panic. So I tried to remotely boot from my powerbook and clone the OS onto the powermac boot drive but it just kept on freezing before the clone could complete. It's almost like there is something in there that doesn't want me to get my machine going again. Very frustrating as some of you may know. Does a machine that has performed so flawlessly for three and a half years just die? Something had to cause this. Could it be the clever new ways that Leopard uses resources that caused my processors undue stress? I have heard a few nightmares with Leopard and G5 owners. Please chime in and lets figure this out.
