Getting frequent Kernel Notification in Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2)

I installed 10.7.2 this morning and now I keep receiving kernel panics. I tried to update all my applications were installed and uninstall any application that is loaded into the boot, nevertheless no matter what you do; the system haphazardly launches a kernel panic. Sometimes it will even while starting systems. Other times it will be running for 20 minutes and then explode. Even if I'm not touching the computer. I've tried fixing disk permissions and made a recovery of Lion return to see if that helps, but it did not. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Getting frequent Kernel Notification in Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2)

The panic happened, and he tried to run something that was not really a valid statement. The kind of panic, "page fault" indicates that the instruction in question attempted to access an incorrect address. The instruction is

Code:
(gdb) x/i 0xffffff800054a570
0xffffff800054a570 <setgroups1+128>:    or     %al,-0x41(%rcx)
RCX is 0x0000000001000000, which is not a valid address, so it is the immediate cause of panic.But more importantly; it is not a valid statement. If removing the flow of instructions around that address, is that you're actually in the middle of an instruction:
Code:
0xffffff800054a56c <setgroups1+124>:    test   %r15d,%r15d
0xffffff800054a56f <setgroups1+127>:    jne    0xffffff800054a579 <setgroups1+137>
0xffffff800054a571 <setgroups1+129>:    mov    $0x1,%r15d
0xffffff800054a577 <setgroups1+135>:    jmp    0xffffff800054a594 <setgroups1+164>
0xffffff800054a570 is in the middle of an instruction. 0xffffff800054a56f or 0xffffff800054a571 would be valid, but not 0xffffff800054a570.

This makes me think you may have bad RAM. Did you add memory to the machine recently? What happens if you uninstall Parallels and Hermes Audio? These are the non-Apple texts (kernel extensions) listed in the register of panic.

Re: Getting frequent Kernel Notification in Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2)

I added ram months ago and have had no troubles. Now I'm running Remember to test the RAM, but everything looks good so far. I put in parallel after the panic began to happen so I was wondering if VMware Fusion 3 causing the problems. To the extent hermesaudio, how I can find and remove that?

Sorry, you must request this information Rogue Amoeba. It provides the kernel extension. Kernel extensions in / System / Library / Extensions usually

I cannot explain this kind of panic, without assuming RAM inconsistent. You can pass a test as Remember, although not in practice.

Re: Getting frequent Kernel Notification in Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2)

I had my old RAM back in an hour and everything seems fine. I miss my 8GB though. Especially when running Parallels for development work. Thank you all for your help.

Re: Getting frequent Kernel Notification in Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2)

Since I put in my new RAM, I have not had a single kernel panic. Also re-install all applications and remove things and still all is well. Definitely seems strange that I have installed 10.7.2 and suddenly my RAM crapped out as well. Maybe you have done something with memory management in the new version.

Re: Getting frequent Kernel Notification in Mac OS X Lion (10.7.2)

I also had 15 "kernel panic" for every 20 reboots yesterday. For what it's value I just dropped my 10 days of the new-fangled iMac (1 TB SSD + HD, 8 MB of RAM, 10.7.2) go to the Apple store after running Apple Hardware Test

Code:
(extended version ) and obtain the subsequent consequence:
Warning: Apple Hardware Test has detected an error:
4MEM/62/40000000: OX8655e518
The Genius bar mates looked at my results with your boss and think it's a RAM problem. Now they are replacing the RAM chips. I do not know if this will be the ultimate solution, but we're starting.Looks like you're on the right track.
