10.3: Possible kernel panics on dual-boot machines
Authored by: pcp_ip on Oct 29, '03 03:48:25PM
If you did the upgrade option of 10.3 (and not archive or clean install) then the postfix user wasn't added to Netinfo. You'll be seeing errors like:
postfix: fatal: file /etc/postfix/main.cf: parameter mail_owner: unknown user name value: postfix
follow the instructions at xlr8yourmac to run the create users script that the upgrade didn't run.

10.3: No panics, but it is freezing a lot
Authored by: LeRoy Wong on Oct 29, '03 04:14:06PM

This is very interesting. I have a G4 733 QS that's been running strangely since I did an archive install of 10.3 on one of the drives. I ran disk first aid before I did the install also. The other drive has 10.2.4. I'm not getting kernel panics but I am getting a lot of system freezes that I can't force quit out of. I also was suddenly getting disk errors, which makes it infuriating to troubleshoot with all these variables. iDVD has been flakey as well, although that's an issue I've been having for awhile now. I thought perhaps Panther was more sensitive to RAM now. When I ran Techtool Pro it indicated something was wrong with the RAM, so I took one of the possibly defective modules out. I'll have to test further for a few days to see.
