Random Kernel Panics At Boot. Networking Related?


5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Okay, so obviously there is something related to networking in this panic, but how do I fix it.


I can't figure out why it happens on some boots and not others.


It has happened with more than one kernel.


I have pictures below of a 9.2.2 kernel, probably the Vanilla kernel, and a 9.2.0 kernel made by TOH.


Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Marvell Yukon chip? Are you using a modified IONetworking kext or vanilla?Boot in verbose.


According to http://gentoo-wiki.com/ASUS_P5B_Deluxe,


"The ASUS P5B Deluxe has two onboard gigabit ethernet network interfaces:


The first is a Marvell Yukon 88E8056 connected via PCI Express.


The second NIC is a Marvell Yukon 88E8001 connected via PCI."


So... yes.I don't know if I am using a modified kext.


I don't remember installing anything for networking support.


I believe I unchecked the networking drivers on the kalyway 10.5.2 disc.


I'll make sure thats its vanilla in a little while.


Update: There is a Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet driver on the Kalyway 10.5.2 install disc. Should I install that?


Edit: I am using a modified version of something.


I used Mistico86's package to get my Ethernet working. (Here)


It worked fine for me on my old BrazilMac Leopard install, so I'm not quite sure why it would be causing problems now with Kalyway 10.5.2.

I'm still having this problem occasionally.


If it is going to happen, it occurs before the wheel starts spinning on the white apple screen.


Sometimes I have it come up 3 times to 5 times in a row.


My system is now about as vanilla as it can get, with the kexts in the EFI partition. It onloy seems to happen once, but it is still happening randomly.


Any new ideas?
