    yesterday I was getting kernal panics at random, and i have already gotten another kernal panic today. I have not added any hardware to the macbook, the only recent thing i have done is install the new Serato 1.9 RC

    Here is Apple's Support info: Kernel Panic

    You might want to start there

    Along with the guide here on MacRumors: Kernel Panic Guide

    Thanks i did check those out before posting. I booted up from the mac install disc and reformatted and partitioned the Harddrive. But now when I am going to run the installer mac os x says I do not meet the requirements to install Leopard.

    This is the exact error I am getting now

    Now the macbook would not start up so i reformatted the hd, and now the installer DVD takes me to the point where i chose my language then i get this error saying Mac OS X cannot install on this computer read the install read me on the DVD

    I could not find the original disk that the macbook came with to re install Leopard. If I can not find this disk am i ****ed?

    Almost definitely yes. Probably the RAM, CPU or system board.

    Boot in safe mode, and remove/deinstall Serato.

    And if you don't know what safe mode is ... that Help menu item will say.

    Could have two problems Scratch Live which results in a call to a bad memory address.

    Yanking the 3rd party memory and disabling Scratch Live should end things.

    ---

    Then you will need to repair the drive, since repeated kernel panics can mess up the drive catalog -- and if you've had enough of them, you could be past the tipping point which get worse and you will ultimately end with a flashing question mark (aka, really messed up drive).

    Sunbaked, I have already formatted the drive, so Scratch Live in not installed at the moment, i took out one of the 512 mhz RAM chip and ran the hardware test and passed it on the second one so now I know which was the faulty RAM. I am currently installing Leopard since it only requires 512 RAM to run. Hopefully it will install.

    As for repairing the drive you mean repairing the hard drive in disk utility right?

    Because i definitely do not want to see any more of those kernel panics, I will be having nightmares of them tonight.

    If you formatted the drive, you wiped the file catalog, which is what tends to get fragged with repeated kernel panics.

    All those failures to completely finish file updates still lead down the path to borked file catalog, journaling just made it take longer.

    ---

    You shouldn't have had to reformat, once you found the bad ram simply repairing the drive using fsck or disk first aid would have been enough.

    Though both are multi-pass repairs so you'd need to keep repairing until no more changes were made.

    With the current Leopard under fsck, it just gives a "file system modified" so you'd need another pass.

    G5 Mysterious Kernal Panic

    I would be much obliged if someone could could decipher this for me please. I run a business and its hard when I crash on a kernal panic at random times. Usually when Im downloading, surfing/browsing, or running a program called Second Life. Seems to be due to bandwidth traffic..(?) Thanks much.
