AuthorSubject: Photoshop & Mac OS X Kernel Panic   [Go to Bottom of Page]
Joe Hardesty
Posted on Thu Aug 14, 2003 4:59 PM

For the past 3+ week, I have been experiencing Mac OS X kernel panics while working in Photoshop. That is were the screen goes dim with a message that your only option is a forced shut down of the computer. It is the Mac equivalent of the "Blue Screen of Death". Here are the details:

Mac dual 1.25GB G4
2 GB RAM (all Apple)
Mac OS X 10.2.6
Photoshop 7.0.1
2 external LaCie Firewire Drives
Canon S9000 photo printer
Ethernet network to DSL and networked laser printer

I have experienced as many as 3 kernel panics in one day but I have also gone as long as 3 days without one.

I have talked to Apple tech support several times and we are in the midst of a guessing game. All of the file system checks, with fsck and Disk First Aid, and the Hardware Tests have come up clean.

Now, they have asked me to run without the Firewire drives (where I typically store all images and backups) and S9000 (my only photo output device) connected so we can eliminate those as a potential problems. But since the problem is intermittent, it will take at least a week just determine these are or are not part of the problem.

Apple is trying to blame Photoshop based on the fact that it always happens when I am working in PS7, but the fact is that I am working in PS7 about 95% of the time so that it really not a relevant conclusion to draw. And I have reminded them that one of the inherent advantages of Mac OS X is that no one application is supposed to be able to bring down the system.

Anyone have a clue or similar experiences? I have searched a variety of online resources, including Adobe and Apple, and while there are many references to such problems, I have yet to see a solution offered.

Any help is most appreciated.

Joe
