#15988 - 06/11/11 04:49 AM Kernel Panic?

I think I may have had one of those kernel panics but I don't know how to fix it. Here's the scoop.

Yesterday evening, as my machine was booting up, I clicked on Eye TV, a device that takes a cable feed and converts it to USB. Then the TV feed appears in a "monitor" on screen with the ability to select channels et cetera. Usually I am fully booted before I turn it on.

Anyway,....the Eye TV provided a feed but, when my machine finished booting up, I did not have all the items in the menu bar at the top of the screen. I had everything on the left side but only the Sophos Icon on the right side.

Everything was working fine but I wanted the right side items and decided to do a reboot. After Restart I got the Grey screen and rotating clock hand for quite a long time before the machine changed to the blue screen. After quite a few minutes, nada. I did a forced shutdown holding the AC switch.

Another boot attempt generated the same result....except I timed things. The grey screen was 1.5 minutes and the blue screen was 7 minutes. The blue screen would have gone longer except I pulled the Eye TV USB plug out.

With Eye TV unplugged, the log-in window appeared. However, it was "locked" and did not respond to any input.

I rebooted using my IMac Disk and did a "Startup Disk" restart to my backup drive. It took longer than I expected but it did have a working Log In screen. I did Permissions Repair and a full Disk Warrior directory rebuild on my main drive.

The only difference from other times was that the Permissions Repair ended with a message I've never seen before: "ACL found but not expected on "Users/Shared"."

An attempt to reboot the main drive simply resulted in the same interminable waits although, when I touched the AC switch, the Log In window appeared. However, it wasn't functioning.

I needed to boot again from my iMac Disk and use "Startup Disk" to get to my backup drive. I do note that, although it works, when I Log Out from this drive, it has a very long blue screen before it gets to the Log In window....although the window does work.

I am currently operating from my backup drive and don't plan to do any "back to log in window" moves.

Edit: I use the moving mosaic screensaver. It is now showing large blocks of white - something it's never done before.

Edit: I forgot....in the midst of all the things I was doing I also tried a Safe Boot but that didn't generate a working Log In window either.

Edit: Getting dozy in my old age....at one point I also tried removing these two plists but that didn't resolve anything. I have since put them back.
com.apple.loginitems.plist
com.apple.loginwindow.plist

Yet another edit: I think I've solved it. I did a bit of poking around and found that there are two sets of the above plists - the second being in my Admin Account. I removed both and did a restart, using Opt to get Startup Disk, and the machine booted from my main drive. Whew!!

I will now replug Eye TV and see what happens.

Hopefully final edit (Cross my heart and spit in a circle): I shutdown and plugged Eye TV back into the USB port. On reboot, and waiting to ensure everything was loaded, I opened Eye TV successfully. Everything seems to be working.

However, I still don't know what actually happened. It would be good to know so I don't do it again.

Can you retrieve those plists from a backup so we can read their (former) contents?

I don't know how to attach the plists here. However, using TextEdit, I tried copying and pasting the contents (two tries) but cannot get anything more than this to appear in the post.

In Terminal, you could paste this command

defaults read ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginitems

and then hit Return; the Terminal output will be something like

Code:

    SessionItems =     {
        Controller = CustomListItems;
        CustomListItems =         (

(In the interest of economy, I snipped out most of my output; what you see above represents a single login item.)

Done......here's the result....although it's sure different from the stuff in textedit. it seemed to be mostly, well, prose.

Neither these two plists nor anything else in any user's home folder can be the cause of the problem. The system won't look in any user's home folder until after you log in, because until then it doesn't know which user is relevant.

But you're hanging before that, in the LoginWindow. The problem has to be with something encountered much earlier in the boot sequence than the things you're looking at.

Try unplugging all peripherals (except mouse and keyboard) before rebooting. USB devices, in particular, are known for causing bizarre startup problems. That includes USB hubs, so unplug those, but don't overlook FireWire devices.

If that lets you boot up, try adding things back a few at a time to narrow down the offending device.

A dead battery in a wireless keyboard would make a LoginWindow seem locked. Just a thought.

But then, why did the problem go away with the removal of the plists? Coincidence?

My USB peripherals are:

Keyboard
with iPod Nano attached
Eye TV
Belkin 7 outlet hub with:
Printer
Digital Camera
Kensington Trackball

I have one Firewire going to my back-up drive and a loop through it to my TimeMachine backup.

Anyway, I've done what you suggested and, since it's only a few items, I re-attached them one at a time with shutdowns between. Almost nothing changed....except that....from the start I got a faster start-up and faster load of the menu bar and the dock. They have both been a bit sluggish since the incident.

Update Edit: Several hours later everything continues completely normal with good speed, no incidents and no harm done....except losing a few more hairs I couldn't afford.

Originally Posted By: ganbustein

Would that be the Eye TV starting and providing the on-screen feed before the machine had completely loaded?

Edit for question clarification: Although the boot sequence with the Eye TV was separate from the sequence that resulted in the locked Log-In window, I wondered if they are related.

That is, the Eye TV and the Log-In window do similar things. They both create a window in which instructions are given. Therefore, during the first boot (Eye TV) could the Eye TV software have done something that affected the boot sequence (instructions?) for the window creation?

Then, in the second boot, the altered instructions (if that's a possibility) would be wrong for creation of the Log-In window.

Caveat: My questions are never from the point of technical knowledge (mine is limited) but from simple-minded logic.

Here's one way to see (some of the) stuff which loads early on...

kextstat |grep -v com.apple

That terminal command will give info about non-Apple extensions.

For example, here's my current output:
Code:
Index Refs Address    Size       Wired      Name (Version) <Linked Against>
   60    0 0x908000   0x2e000    0x2d000    at.obdev.nke.LittleSnitch (2.3.19) <7 5 4 3 1>
   98    1 0x19d1000  0x3000     0x2000     com.avatron.AVExVideo (1.3.0) <76 5 4 3>

i.e., Little Snitch and Air Display (by Avatron, to use my iPad as a 2nd display).

How about yours?

That is easy enough to prove or disprove. Simply disconnect all USB devices, including USB hubs, and see if the problem goes away. If it does go away then start swapping out the USB devices beginning with the least expensive, the USB cables, going from there to any hubs, and keep going until the only thing left is the logric board. If Hal's "Hmm" is on target, and it sounds reasonable to me, this type of error is notoriously hard to pin down so have patience.

Well i see Sophos is an early riser (and also mentioned in post #1).
I would say disabling AV until the current mystery is solved might be wise.
[we Macsters don't need it that badly.]

Interestingly enough, a google on your "com.hzsystems.driver" there finds a few threads about KPs.

The only thing along those lines i can think of is: sudo dmesg

Below is what sudo dmesg just generated. It's too back I couldn't get a list by entering a specific time, as I know the boot time...17:59 on Friday (I was in a hurry to catch the lead story on the news).

Sorry, seems i was wrong about dmesg. (i always thought it retained a view the startup chatter... but i guess not, unless we run it shortly after initially booting up and logging in).

Not to worry......I'm quite pleased about two things. I'm up-and-running again without any apparent hitches (although I am watching for signs) and, secondly, I've learned a couple more things about Terminal - both from you and dkmarsh - so I'm ahead of the game.

So that "com.hzsystems.driver" item never panned out to be anything relevant? (as i indicated, teh google on that string produced several threads about kernel panics for me [but i never followed them to see what was there]).

I did Google it, and looked through quite a few of the results, but didn't see anything that was meaningful to me.

I have also entered the Terminal command again and com.hzsystems.driver still shows. However, everything seems to be going okay.

So, I've been back to the "com.hzsystems.driver" Google list and spent a bit more time. It seems that "com.hzsystems.driver" is a non-Apple kernel extension. The second part of the name "CDSDAudioCaptureSupport 1.5 indicates that it belongs to Spin Doctor.

Spin Doctor is a program that comes with Roxio Toast Titanium and is used for digitizing analogue audio. I don't use Spin Doctor (preferring Amadeus Pro) but I do keep all the Toast software up to date.

I looked in Library/Application Support/Roxio and only saw one Kernel extension "TDIXController.kext", so I have no idea where "com.hzsystems.driver" is located. Even Spotlight doesn't see it.

Sorry for the delays in responding but I've been dealing with a City Council and they aren't the brightest bunch....about as thick as two short planks.

For what it is worthm, I have SpinDoctor on my system and as far as I can discern there is no file by that name on my system.

I am not terribly surprised Spotlight did not find it since kernel extensions are by definition drivers you have to intentionally include system files before Spotlight will find them and Spotlight will not find package contents. However EasyFind, which uses an entirely different search mechanism and will find both system files and package contents did not find it either. I also used EasyFInd to search the contents of the files in the system and the applications folders for a reference to com.hzsystems.driver with no result.

Condolences on having to deal with a city council. Been there, done that, burned the t-shirt.

Since it turned up for the kextstat command, its location is bound to be inside: /System/Library/Extensions/

I looked there but there isn't anything called "com.hzsystems.driver.CDSDAudioCaptureSupport (1.5) <95 5 4 3 1". However, there is one with only some of the second part of the name, and it is called: "CDSDAudioCaptureSupport.kext"

I did an experiment and entered the Terminal command without the "|grep -v com.apple".

Entering only "kextstat" generated a list of 125 items and each of them, except one, begins with "com.apple. "

The one that does not is: "com.hzsystems.driver.CDSDAudioCaptureSupport (1.5) <101 5 4 3 1>"

The full name 'com.com.hzsystems.driver.CDSDAudioCaptureSupport" is the bundle identifier, as specified in the Info.plist from inside the kext.

Enter the command:

defaults read /System/Library/Extensions/CDSDAudioCaptureSupport.kext/Contents/Info

and you should see (among other things)

CFBundleIdentifier = "com.hzsystems.driver.CDSDAudioCaptureSupport";

The "(1.5)" is coming, I would guess, from

CFBundleShortVersionString = "1.5";

but that's not important. The important thing is that the matching bundle identifier confirms that you're looking at the right file.

I do see the full name and "1.5" appears four times.

Note to all: I'm not sure what I'm tossing on the table here so, if it isn't helpful and just occupying space, don't be bashful about saying so.

1. Keep an eye out for a hardware issue.

2. Avoid loading Eye TV until the boot cycle is finished.

No... i just meant that i wasn't surprised that kextstat didn't list the exact filename in a clear format. Nor were the results of that experiment (omitting grep -v) of an unexpected nature.

TBH, i have no clue what zapped your Mac that day. (stuff happens... randomly and singularly sometimes)

BTW, is Sophos still on the disabled list... or is it back in the mix?
