    Sorry, I never noticed I posted this in the wrong forum and I can't see an option to delete it or move it.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    You're not really in the wrong forum. The kernel forum is more for kernel programming issues. It sounds like either your kernel pci driver is broken/corrupted, or your hard drive is getting a bad sector. Have you been running this image for awhile without difficulties and it just started giving trouble, or did you do an install/update and it immediately started giving this problem on reboot?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Thanks for the reply.

    This is a new install, the crash happened as soon as I logged in. The update tool also updated the kernel to was still the same.

    Just to test, I installed on a spare machine at work and also started getting kernel crash errors, I was wondering if it could be the disk and if I should download another and burn on another disk and try again.



    Just logged in and checked the machine at work and it is not a kernel crash but was caused when starting Empathy (I think)

    I'm not too bothered about this one, it is more about should I be worried about the kernel crash, I don't see any difference after the crash and the machine keeps running.
