There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

Unhappy Kernel Panic!

I just encountered two kernel panics while running LimeWire and
my web browser (iCab) at the same time. This had never occurred
before. The first took place while running LW in the background and
browsing the WWW. The second occurred while I was running LW and
iCab was starting.

As a Mac user, i am not used to seeing a dark (grey or blue for other systems)
screen telling me to restart my computer every day.

I never encountered kernel panics with either iCab or LW and have
used both often at the same time. Maybe someone can help? Pleeease!!

The panic.log for the second crash is as follows:

I dont know which data is relevant and which is not. My configuration:
iMac DV SE G3 400 MHz (1999), RAM 640 MB, external FireWire HD,
OSX 10.3.5, external Ethernet DSL Modem (Teledat 331 LAN).
And LW 4.1.5.

Thanks in advance,

stief has a spectacular aura about

looks to me to be a problem with the external firewire (or SCSI?) drive "IOSCSIMultimediaCommandsDevice"

When LW crashes you'll see mention of java and it won't trigger a kernel panic. kernel panics are OS or hardware problems (like FW drives, memory chips, and a corrupted OS)

There were problems with firewire drives a while back: check the manufacturers site for a firmware update or something like that.

icab [gad! I'd forgotten about that! what OS are you using?] and LW run in the "user space" and don't have enough access to the parts that can crash the system: they can only crash themselves.

Well, thank you very much for clearing that up. I
almost suspected it wasnt LW, but since it happened
twice in a row with the same programs running...

BTW, iCab is still in "beta testing" mode, the current version
(April 2004) is 2.9.8. Yet, here in Germany it is quite popular.
And running on OSX 10.3.5. I am used to it and i like the various
filtering and finetuning options.

Thank you very much again. Im going to check for a firmware
update or something like that for my HD.

Anyway, No SCSI devices present. I wonder what that means.

Both FireWire and USB internally use the SCSI command set even though they transfer the command blocks using different cabling.

murasame is a great assister to others; your light through the dark tunnel

Um, you can try doing a hardware check (you know by poping in the disc that came with your comp and restarting while holding the options key...).
iMac G4 OSX 10.3.9
LW 4.10.5 Basic
ADSL anything from 3 to 8Mbps/around 1024kbps
