    My Dual Core 2.3 just crashed for no good reason!

    I turned it on this morning, checked the news and my bands myspace, then checked my hotmail. Then i quit safari & got the grey screen decending! :(

    This is the 1st kernal panic since i got 10.4.3 on the go, so i'm pissed off its lost its uncrashed record :(

    Any way of finding out what caused the crash?

    I clicked on report from the 'report crash' thing it brought up after restarting, but it did nothing...

    boooooooooo :(

    Obviously the Safari app ran a shutdown routine and was revolted to learn it was running on an Intel chip.

    Make sure you visit apple.com/intel next time you open Safari so it gets the news. It may sob and ask you to hold it for awhile, but it should stop panicking.

    Just one KP? I wouldn't worry about it unless it's a consistant issue.

    Look at your kernel panic log.

    /Applications/Utilites/Console.app -> /Library/Logs/ -> panic.log

    safari should be happy since i'm running dual 2.3 G5 PowerMac.

    either way, closing Safari shouldn't crash OSX! Grrr

    Sounds to me like it wants to imitate Explorer.exe & Windows.

    I wouldn't worry about it though, just give it regular visits to apple.com

    what exactely made you think he was running an intel chip? [​IMG]

    last i checked, apple isn't shipping anything with 2.3GHz intel chips.

    yet another example of why people on these forums need to do a better job of reading a post fully before replying to it.
