Can anyone tell me what this panic log means?

    Two times now (a week apart), I awakened to find my mac's (dual 2.5 G5) fans running at what seemed like 100+% and the screen was black and the mac entirely unresponsive. When I forced a shutdown and restarted, I found a message that the OS had quit and the dialog offered to sent a report to Apple.

    This is the panic log from last night, but it means nothing to me. Can anyone shed some light on what this might mean?

    And here's the one from a week ago when it did the same thing. It looks virtually the same to my untrained eye:

    Well the repair_packages bit suggests that is has something to do with verify permissions/hard drive.

    Also this bit "hfs: getcnid: unknown" suggests it is something to do with your disk as well.

    If it were me I would make a backup of anything that isn't already backed up immediately as those errors seem kinda worrying and perhaps failing disk/disk in need of serious repair.

    Where you doing anything particular at the time?
    Backup then investigate.

    Thanks for the response. As far as I can tell, this happened after midnight and I was asleep at the time.

    I have a couple of Retrospect scripts that run overnight to back up various computers throughout the house and from the Retrospect logs all I can tell is that the 11:00 pm script ran fine and the computer crashed some time after the 11:00 pm script finished at 11:18 and before the 3 am script ran.

    The computer would have been idle between these two scripts.


    Before I boot from another drive and check the drive, I just now ran Disk Tools > Verify to verify the Startup disk and got this error:

    Performing live verification.
    Checking Journaled HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Invalid key for thread record
    Volume check failed.

    Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed.
