  1. I installed the 1.02 updater, all went fine (I think!)

    - My second try with Forty-Two. I thought it was taking too long, so I quit the Forty-Two app from the Menu. I was left with the "stream.yuv". So I went into the Application Support/Forty-Two, and there was the 'WipeStreamYUV" application. I clic on Open the "stream.yum" with it (as following the ReadMe instruction). Nothing happened? Stream.yuv is still there?


    - In my first attempt with Forty-Two (version 1.0), I got a Kernel Panic and had to restart, anyways... I tried to to rip a DVD to SVCD. But I think all the converter apps out there can only deal with 2 channels sound, not 6? Could it be why it did not work?

  2. Forgot to mention... In my fisrt attempt with Forty-two, I alos had a stream.yuv file that I could not delete. So, I loged in as Root and deleted it. Was it a good/bad idea???

  3. Open Terminal, type "cd [root folder name]" and contine to "cd" until you're in the right folder, and type "rm -i [file name]". It will then prompt you to delete and type "y" and hit enter.

    FYI I believe on a successful MPEG encode, that pesky stream.yuv file disappears.

  5. If you don't know too much about Terminal (like me!) you can just drag and drop, using that method.

    With the Terminal, just type cd, leave a space and drag the folder where the stream.yuv is, right in the Terminal Window. Then and type "rm -i [file name]". It will then prompt you to delete and type "y" + hit enter.

    I've had a few reports on this and I believe what is going on is that the finder is setting the "busy" bit on these files if you touch them.

    I don't like setting thogs to run as root or requiring admin unless it is *100%* needed, but if that is what it take I'll make sure the next WipeStreamYUV does this.

    Also...

    About KP's, forty-two and You:

    KP's are *not* supposed to happen in UserSpace software on OSX, *especially* with the changes in 10.2

    This is an OS 9 'holdover' in the Mac Mindset...in OS X Normal Apps have NO ACCESS to the kinds of things that can thunk kernelspace and send it to The Spirit In the Sky.

    Drivers, OTOH...oh man

    If this is happing, it is almost a 99% certainty that it is a RAM problem, as the encoders do *not* play around. VERY RAM intensive proccessing going on, and the don't do a lot of paging from what I've seen, either.

    And no, this isn't a "whitewash", in my former job we used to see this *all* the time. Especially after people starting moving from 9 to 10.

    Try popping out any Non-Apple RAM (I know, but I'm TELLIN' Ya...*especially8 on the DDR machines) and giving it another go.

    Otherwise you should really take you machine in for service if you are getting KP's as the cache on the cpu cards might be failing.

    Your Apple Specialist will know what to do.

  7. First of all, many thanks, KaiCherry, for your quick response.

    As for Kernel Panic, I can't say it was really one... I had the multilingual white square page with text, asking me to hold on the power button until shutdown and restart.

    As for RAM, I have 2 X 512 from Apple.

    I don't think you have to have a CPU, RAM, etc. problem to get a Kernel Panic?! Bad instructions are sometimes just enough

    Before OS X Jaguar, I had a couple of real Kernel Panic (with all the crazy text and numbers over the screen) and it was software related, even, it was because of an Apple application (Mail). I'm not sating your cool application game me a KP, I was just reporting my experience and asking what could have caused it.

    Take care and keep it up 8)

    Yep...thats the "Kinder, gentler New Improved KP"

    This is encouraging...

    No winking about it...you need to have your machine looked at or do a clean install. But it sounds hardware related.

    What to I know, tho...I scored *very, very high* on my ProMetric Certification to do this...I'm probably wrong

    If your machine is under warranty and you are having KP's you need to have it looked at. Its not normal by any means, forty-two or otherwise.

    *sigh*

    Get your machine checked. I'm tellin' ya...now you tell this has been happening for months? OS X != OS 9. Baad sign, have it checked.

    You too. Take that machine to a *real* Apple specialist (not stupid CompUSA)

  9. I've been using Mac OS X (currently at 10.2.3) for about a year now without one single Kernel Panic.

    After installing 42 v1.0 two days ago I've had about 10 KPs (corrupt stack) in all sorts of programs. This can even happen after a recent restart without using 42 first. The only app I've installed since this started to happen is 42 though.

    Any ideas of what might be wrong?

    Thanks,

    a year? You a developer?

    1.0x? I'd have to say wild coincidence, or mencoder.
    But if forty-two isn't running it can't be the source.

    I can say that during the whole of development and testing, from 0.0 up to 1.5 stuff we are doing now, only one person ever reported a KP, and he had a Pismo will some sort of 3rd Party CPU upgrade.

    And as you can probably guess, we run the thing *constantly*

    I'm definitely not suspecting the 42 app since my KPs happens even if I haven't used it. Does the installer add any drivers that *MIGHT* cause this?

    Thanks for you quick answer and great support btw.

  12. I've had my dual-867 since last August, came with Jaguar installed, I'm currently at 10.2.3. I left 42 1.0.2 running overnight last night, and when I woke up this morning, my Mac had KP'd. Believe it or not, this is the first KP I have ever experienced. The DivX transcode, as far as I can tell, had successfully completed before the KP, but 42 was still running (I don't remember if this is normal behavior, I think it is). The only other bit of info I can offer is that I was transcoding from a DVD image, not the DVD itself. Strange... coincidence? I hope...

    Cool! Its nice to have an *informed* person asking the scary questions...heheh

    No. In fact, we haven't done anything that could cause this that I can think of.

    Its a head-scratcher, to say the least.

    Even still, there is no way in hell something in userspace is even supposed to get *near* the kernel stack, as I'm sure you know, iMist.



    If *I* start having them I'll let you guys know and I will be ALL OVER Apple. Believe that!

    And SAGE!

    Thanks for the cappucino, man!
