newbie with kernel issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
hi,
ive only had my imac a few months and this is my first mac.
ive been having kernel error messages come up a lot.
i took it to the apple shop and they ran tests and after 4 days i got it back and it still does it.
they said it wasnt a hardware issue.
it seems to happen when my external hard drive is plugged in. im trying to back up to reinstall disks as per apples advice.

this is the report;

The source code for where it failed is here:

http://www.opensource.apple.com/sour...riptor.cpp?txt

The code surrounding Line 1409 is the following:

Code:

// Compute the starting address of this segment
IOPhysicalAddress pageAddr = pageList[pageInd].phys_addr;
if (!pageAddr) {
panic("!pageList phys_addr");
}

address = ptoa_64(pageAddr) + offset;

// length is currently set to the length of the remainider of the iopl.
// We need to check that the remainder of the iopl is contiguous.
// This is indicated by pageList[ind].phys_addr being sequential.
IOByteCount contigLength = PAGE_SIZE - offset;
while (contigLength < length
&& ++pageAddr == pageList[++pageInd].phys_addr) [1409]
{
contigLength += PAGE_SIZE;
}

if (contigLength < length)
length = contigLength;



It definitely looks like it's having problems with your hard drive, maybe it has some bad sectors or something.

If you are able to copy everything off it, you can try zeroing the drive using disk utility and then copying everything back on. You zero using the options button in the erase tab in Disk Utility after selecting the drive on the left.

If the external is a backup drive, you're best not to have just a single copy of your data at any given time though so it may be worth investing in another external hard drive.

Hi, Im also a noob and unsure of what to do, I found this thread by googling the top line of the panic report below!

My mac keeps freezing randomly for what seems like no reason at all- no pattern when Im using external hardware or certain programs? Any ideas at all or is it a trip to the mac store (Ive not taken it in yet)?

Any help would be much appreciated, its quite a chore for me to get to the Mac store where I am based!

Thanks

Looks like it's having an issue with an external drive too but in your case one that is formatted for Windows - a pen drive perhaps?
