    OK, updated to 10.6.2 and the kernal panics continue, Tech Tools Deluxe shows all OK.

    Anybody make head or tail of this please.

    Is the item marked in RED the offending part, and if so what does it mean ?

    Bad or poorly seated RAM maybe? Do you have any aftermarket sticks in there? Especially in "DIMM 0, Channel 2" (System Profiler may be able to she light on which one that is, but it's probably the one marked "2" on the tray)

    Open it up, check that all your DIMMs are snug. The white clips should go into the notches on the sides of the stick on both ends. If they don't, all sorts of weird crap can start happening. If you have any aftermarket RAM, remove it if the problem persists. If it was guarunteed-compatable with your Mac Pro, like OWC's stuff, RMA it. Otherwise, buy something else to replace it.

    System profiler show all dimms OK....

    All memory installed by Apple....

    Yeah, but try it anyhow

    DIMMS will always show they are ok until they're not.

    I've had to re-seat memory boards several times in my computers (laptops). Once, one of the DIMMS ended up being intermittent. It was the original Apple installed DIMM... Crap happens...

    Take J the Ninja's advice and go through the exercise of removing/reseating the boards one at a time. You may find, like I did, that one of them is a bad actor.
