Lately, my MacBook keeps on crashing at random moments. I do think it has something to do with the PS3 Media Server App.

The crash comes with the following Panic Report. Can anybody shed some light on this annoying issue?

In the log, under "unloaded kexts:", VMWare is listed, meaning it is crashing.
I'm not going to pretend to fully understand the log report, but isn't VMWare under "Loaded kexts", not "Unloaded kexts"?

so vmware isn't the problem? Thanks for the google search, but I have looked into it myself and I don't find a specific solution to it.

Please try removing VMware and seeing if the kernel panic continues. It is not that hard of a process and you can keep and virtual machines you have installed.

VMware has been known to cause kernel panics in the past.

vmware has been removed but the problems keeps on occurring. I would be surprised if vmware was the cause because the problem started yesterday and vmware has been on my mac for over a month now.

Is it possible java has something to do with it.. I think it's only occurring while streaming media with ps3 media server. But this is weird since i been using the software for a long time now.

nope, already did that several times.
Things I already did

- checked memory with Rember
- Cleaned my mac with Onyx
- Apple Hardware Test
- Repaired permissions and verified disk
- uninstalled and installed PS3 Media Server
- Reinstalled 10.6.3 Combo Update
and probably some other things I can't think of right now.

I'm really getting kinda desperate right now. It seems it's only crashing while streaming media.

I'm having the same problem as you do, however I don't stream any media. I think it has something to do with Cisco's VPN Client.

I found this page:
http://eternalmedia.se/2009/09/02/cisco-vpn-causes-kernel-panic-on-mac-os-x/

and followed the instructions but to no solution. I even have formatted, reinstalled Mac OS X, not reinstalled VMWare and turned off IPv6, and keep having kernel panics every now and then, as often as before.
I always have them when loading a web page or doing something internet related, that's why I think the problem is with Cisco's VPN!
Are you using it?

I do have cisco vpn for school purposes and I did use it a couple of days ago. It would seem strange to me cause i already used it before on my mac. Have you deleted it already? But i'm not using cisco at the time my MacBook crashes..

Ah ok, in that case maybe it's not the same problem.
I can't delete it because I need it for connecting to the internet (Snow Leopard's own VPN won't work) and whenever I have a kernel panic I'm connected to the internet using Cisco's VPN - which is all the time I use my computer anyway...
