    So I was doing, well, nothing much. Macbook Pro, 2.2 standard config. Adium, Firefox, iTunes running, and it made me reboot, then I got this.

    Code:

    Only recent changes I've made were installing and configuring a mouse driver about an hour ago. It worked fine for that hour or so though...I don't know whether or not it's related.

    Anyone know what caused this? Freak occurence or will this potentially be a repeating thing?

    Looks like the Logitech USB hub driver is old or not working properly.

    Gut instinct and experience with Logitech,Inc.

    Or would you prefer a more geeky answer ? :)

    If I'm wrong it's not the end of the world you know :)

    From the Panic :

    USB Device: USB Receiver, Logitech, Up to 1.5 Mb/sec, 100 mA

    That's a bit slow for USB 2.0.Even though USB is backwards compatible the OP may have something thats USB 2.0 plugged into the 1.1 Logitech device and the kernel panicked when it couldn't reconnect it.

    Just a guess like I said..Don't shoot me please.:)

    In any case I'd disconnect the Logitech device and re-boot.
    Process of elimination.

    I still don't see Logitech as the cause from the panic log.

    Input devices show up at 1.5 MB/s in OS X.

    I understand that the mouse drivers were installed recently. There aren't any references to the input devices in the log though.

    Yes there is.I misunderstood the Logitech input device as a hub rather than a mouse.

    It's probably the Logitech mouse driver then.

    I see how you misunderstood me. Yes, the wireless device receiver is listed. I don't see any mention of the driver though. I don't think it's the direct cause of the kernel panic.

    I've imaged the Logitech Control Center onto at least 50 different machines with no problems at all. I wouldn't be so quick to blame them. ;)

    In all my experiences, Logitech usually works fine. The drivers all seem to run right, I downloaded them from their site today, so they're new, and the mouse works fine.

    It may matter, it may not, but the mouse is running through the new aluminum keyboard's USB ports.

    Logitech has its problems... However the Logietch problem usually shows up in Console. The list of data at the bottom of the posted log is a reference to the machine's specifications, not necessarily the error. Nevertheless, the wise young Peace is right in that trial and error or a process of elimination is usually the easiest way to find the culprit. :)

    And I can say the same on the other end.

    I agree with removing all peripherals in an attempt to isolate it. I've found that the top of the error report is a bit more important here. :p

    Agreed! :D

    After removing the mouse and drivers I'd probably swap out the RAM to test if there's a bad stick. :)

    Really?
    :D

    I still say the Logitech device is the problem.

    Lets put a side bet on it shall we? :p

    Good grief someone has one kernel panic and we need to disassemble the machine, right?

    Might as well throw in a repair disk permissions as well. :rolleyes:

    I'd wait to see if there's a recurrence before taking any drastic action.

    Fine by me.

    Fair call. I usually let the first one slide, although I haven't had even one for quite some time... That number combination seems to usually correlate with RAM though, in my small and very limited experience. Azuerus also places the RAM under a bit of strain and so that's when I'd expect to see RAM-related kernel panics, if ever. Browzilla kinda asked what we thought the cause might be so I'm just putting this out there... ;)

    Alternatively I guess Browzilla could mash it with a hammer and take it back to Apple claiming it was attacked by a giant Dell-wielding sperm whale. Those things can be vicious. I saw one eat a whole family of kelp once! I'll admit I don't like his chances of getting it replaced after that though.

    I wanna see the disassembly pics so I'd say a complete tear apart is necessary to fix this!!

    I'd like to see him take it out back and chop it up with an axe, but that's just me.
