    Question What does this console log mean?
    Hi, I've been experiencing problems with my powerbook g4, after upgrading to 10.5 OS. (http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/app...rt-screen.html)
    Everytime I log in as admin, I get a grey "computer needs to restart" screen, yet everything works fine when I login as guest. Someone suggested I pull up my console log, but I haven't the slightest what all this means. Can anyone help me decipher this puzzle?

    Thanks!

    Question This is more accurate
    This is actually a more accurate console log as it corresponds directly to when I tried logging into my admin account right when the gray screen appeared. If anyone notices anything out of the ordinary, please let me know so that I could at least know what to address. Thanks!
