Does this Kernel panic look like a hardware or software issue?

Asked by benseven (3189points) October 28th, 2008

Here’s the log from a kernel panic that has occured a few times over the last week or two, and it’s starting to bug me. Any ideas?

I’d say hardware interacting with software – so both.

It sounds like you have a Firewire device whose drivers are failing… and that it triggers occasionally when you are running Photoshop. Do you have any non-apple firewire drivers installed?

benseven's avatar

I don’t believe so – only FW devices I’ve used have been two generations of WD Mybook HD – and none have been plugged in at the time of the kernel panics…

squirbel's avatar

Here’s why I said that. You see all the things referring to a driver, the repeated IO family and IO kit? That’s input/output.

So some input/output device is failing in some way. Did you install something on the mybook drive? Something required by software on the main computer? Like…. system files of some sort?

benseven's avatar

Hmmmm… nope.
The only thing that has changed recently, incidentally, was installing VMWare – maybe VMWare’s drivers for connecting hardware to the virtual machine have corrupted my OS X Firewire drivers? I discovered I not longer even get a HardwareGrowler message when I plug an FW device into the port, let alone it mounting… seems pretty kaned…
