Launch IE, Omni Web, Hotline, Carrcho, iTunes, NAV, Limewire, MP3 Rage, AppleWorks, Cinema 4D, BodyPaint 6.3, Bryce 5, Painter 7, Freehand 10, Graphic Converter, Preview, Toast PB1 , BBEdit Lite at the same time.....

Yeap...apps launch real quick but when the last app is launch.....instant KERNEL PANIC!

Now I learn I should not launch over 10 apps at once :D






{EDIT} "Launch" in here means "starting up"....see my next reply..

There are people here that compete by posted screen shots that show how many app on their machine they have launched at one time, and it's a lot more than 10. I think we've all tried it once or twice. I don't believe it's the OS in general that is having a problem, it may be your particular install of the OS, which is probably corrupt in some way. Run Disk Util, and see if there is a prroblem with the file structure, or possibly check your memory. Bad memory can somtimes do this.

What I said "launch" in my post was starting up

I have tons of apps open in OSX (maybe over 20 something).

What I meant in the last post is that never try to start up over 10 apps at once. The HD will have to keep pace with all those apps and that may cause kernel panic.

That's what I meant....sorry if I confuse you guys :(

I just launched 13 apps all at once no problem at all

Terminal
ProcessViewer
Address Book
Transmit
TextEdit
Sherlock
Acrobat Reader 5.0
OmniWeb
Internet Explorer
Fire
Console
iTunes
Chess

and all of these finished opening in under 30 seconds.

I tried this on 3 different machines some apps varied but all worked.

sounds like you mave have a problem

I tried to start up 13 very light apps like preview, processor view , Acrobat....etc no problem.

....but half of the apps that I mentioned before are heavy apps and are sitting on different partitions.....

Noticed that most of your apps are very common on Carracho, and Carracho is on your list. Carracho is not exactly the most reliable source for clean apps or OS's. I'm not saying your pirating software, but I would wager on the side that you probably are like everyone else here. You might want to consider your methods before you start pointing fingers at Apple. For all we know you got beta copies of all the apps, and the OS, which could be corrupt or contain viruses. And I'll overlook that Cinema and BodyPaint are on your list, since I work and speak with the programmers every day. :eek:

I just opened up my applications folder, hit command-a, and then selected "Open" from the contextual menu. Everything went fine... and the undulating string of icons was cool too.

I just launched all the apps on my dock, about 20 of them and I had no problems. I did this twice and for the first time with 576mb of RAM, I had pageouts shown in Top and only 7mb of free RAM. No kernel panics in X since March 24th when Quickeys in Classic caused a kernel panic.

I just opened up my applications folder, hit command-a, and then selected "Open" from the contextual menu
I accidentally launched every single application in my apps folder by doing that (but double-click instead of contextual menu), and they all launched fine. The pain was having to go through and Cmd-Q all of them!

Couldn't it be a problem of diskspace? I would assume that Bryce and Painter both need large amounts of scratch space. And although it is probably not related at all I've known Photoshop6 on Win2k to collide neatly with window's virtual memory and cause all sorts of problems.

Now I am starting to suspect the problem is from either one of them:

1) Carracho
2) iTunes.....
3) MP3 Rage
4) LimeWire


I tried to startup many applications at the same time again (without these four) and had no problems......

I remember back to the 10.04 days these four "suspected" apps did give me kernel panics

I will let you guys know when I am feeling sure


ps. I DO own software! ;)

Limewire was a problem for me as was Carracho. I never had a kernel panic, but they both crashed on me when using 10.0.4
I would try Mactella in place of Limewire, as I had good luck with it, after waiting 5 minutes or so to seek out and connect to their servers.
I use iTunes all the time, and never had any problem with that on any of my many Macs that I use with OS X.

It could be a lot of things considering how a lot of people go about their business these days. He could also have cheap memory and HD's. Cheap memory will cause this kind of behavior, especially with memory intensive applications such as the ones on his list.

Yeah, but which ones? I'll tell you what, if you can scan a random page from each of the manuals, including OS 10.1, I'll believe and consider your problem to be legit. Until then I'll just chalk it up to opperator error. I think we should just leave it at that since we all know it works well on our machines.

So far Limewire is the biggest suspect.....

I lauch iTunes and Hotline and Carracho along with other Cinema (native) and Word 98 (classic) and so far okay....haven't seen kernel panic....

I also tried starting Limewire with Cinema and Word....boom! instant kernel panic.....I don't know if it's the java thing in Limewire causing the problem.......

I will try it a few more times to make sure if I am right or wrong and will stop...I don't want to lose anything on my hard drive :(

ezra, Why does someone have to prove to you they legitimately own software before helping them out with a problem?
I know of several people who own computers, both Mac and PC that don't work right, when mine does, but I don't ask them for proof of ownership before helping them.

Well, when you work with a software developer for awhile, you learn to weed out the real problems. In this case, I work for one of the companies to which he named as one of the apps he's launching. Secondly because I'm pretty sure the rest are all either hacked or beta's, and not reliable. You don't install a hacked/Beta OS and software then complain when it doesn't work. Try working tech support sometime, you would go crazy with all the stupid things people do, and they wonder why things don't work. It should be obvious that hacks, and beta software/OS's are not going to run stable. If they want things to run smooth, they have to buy the final release. Otherwise they shouldn't complain.
