For about the last week, attempting to run any X11-based program on my MacBook Pro now causes a kernel panic, that looks something like this:

I can start X11 on its own. That's not what causes the crash. The crash occurs as soon as I try to run an X11 app, such as xterm, or Inkscape. It doesn't seem to matter what other programs I have running at the time, whether I started X11 on a clean reboot, etc. I've tried all of the following:

 

  • repaired disk permissions
  • made sure I have all the latest OS X updates
  • deleted any files in ~/Library containing "x11"
  • installed Xquartz (the latest version) and started Xquartz instead of X11
  • tried to open one of the simplest X11 apps (Terminal, aka. xterm, from the X11 menu)

 

Doesn't seem to matter. Every time I get the same kernel panic when I run the X11 app.

 

Since apparently nobody else on the web has reported this particular error in relation to X11, I'm tempted to reinstall OS X Lion... a big job but I'm not sure what else to try. Any other advice before I do that would be most welcome!

    Linc Davis Level 10 Level 10 (118,030 points)

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.

     

    This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.

     

    The purpose of this exercise is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login. Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. The instructions provided by Apple are as follows:

     

    • Be sure your Mac is shut down.
    • Press the power button.
    • Immediately after you hear the startup tone, hold the Shift key. The Shift key should be held as soon as possible after the startup tone, but not before the tone.
    • Release the Shift key when you see the gray Apple icon and the progress indicator (looks like a spinning gear).

     

    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including wireless networking on some Macs.

     

    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.

     

    Test while in safe mode. Same problem(s)?

     

    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode.)

    vtowel Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Hi Linc,

     

    It seems that even in safe mode, X11 still causes this same kernel panic. Actually I discovered a couple small differences in behaviour, but it always resulted in a kernel panic in the end. I tried it twice in safe mode.

     

    The first time in safe mode, I ran X11, then chose Terminal from the menu. Immediately, before xterm appeared, everything froze (panic).

     

    The second time, I tried running Xquartz instead. Xquartz refused to start, instead showing me an error message about some "display" not being available (IIRC) and giving me the option to "Crash" or "Cancel" (strange options IMHO). I chose "Cancel". Then I ran X11. From the X11 menu I chose Terminal, but nothing happened. I waited and there was no crash and no window appeared. I chose Terminal again, and again nothing. I clicked it a third time, and finally the xterm window in fact appeared (a first), but was only there for half a second before the same kernel panic occurred and I had to reboot.

     

    I'll attach that last panic report, but it's very similar to the last one so I don't know how useful it will be:

    (BTW: It shows above that I have my iPod and LED Cinema Display connected, but my hardware must have been polled only just now after the reboot because I most definitely didn't have either of those devices connected while I was in safe mode. Seems odd that an accurate listing of my hardware isn't captured at the time of the crash and included in /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/*.panic – just a shortcoming of the panic reporting mechanism, I imagine?)

    The second panic log shows the iPod and the external monitor connected. There's no way that could happen unless they really were connected, or else you have some obscure system corruption or hardware fault. I suggest you try again to confirm this result. Also run System Information while in safe mode to make sure it doesn't show those devices connected. If the result is the same, reinstall the Mac OS and try one more time.

    Hi Linc,

     

    I've done as you said, and now I am even more certain that the hardware summary that /System/Library/CoreServices/Problem Reporter.app appends to the end of the panic report is generated at time of system recovery, after it has rebooted from a panic, not at the time of the kernel panic. Here's why.

     

    1. I shut down my Mac, then disconnected all devices - even the power supply. I also turned off my Bluetooth keyboard and trackpad.
    2. I started my Mac in safe mode.
    3. Upon logging in, I ran the System Information app to see what USB devices OS X thinks I have attached:Screen Shot 2012-02-23 at 2.30.25 PM.jpg
      As you can see, no Apple LED Cinema Display or iPod devices are listed.
    4. I ran X11, tried to run xterm, and my system promptly kernel-panicked.
    5. I shut down the Mac.
    6. I plugged in my Apple LED Cinema Display and iPod.
    7. I restarted my Mac.
    8. After logging in, the Problem Reporter (/System/Library/CoreServices/Problem Reporter.app) app automatically launches. I immediately skim the "Problem Details and System Configuration" report, and at first glance I see that the report ends here:
      ...
      com.apple.driver.AppleKeyStore      28.18
      com.apple.driver.AppleACPIPlatform  1.4
      com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily         2.6.8
      com.apple.iokit.IOACPIFamily        1.4

      (I'd like to point out to you that this is also how the file /Library/Logs/DiagnosticReports/Kernel_2012-02-23-143316_paul.panic ends. There is NO hardware information logged in any of my panic report files in that directory.)
    9. After a few seconds, these lines are then appended to the "Problem Details and System Configuration" report in Problem Reporter:

    As you can see, Problem Reporter is reporting what I have plugged in right now. It makes sense that there was a bit of a delay before these lines appeared, because Problem Reporter was probably polling my hardware for a moment. I agree that it doesn't make any sense, and in my opinion this is a major bug of OS X's crash reporting system.

     

    If you still don't believe me, I highly encourage you to try this out yourself, if you know of a way to generate a kernel panic on your system. All you have to do is shut down, unplug your hardware, start up again, generate a kernel panic, shut down, plug your hardware back in, then start your computer and see what Problem Reporter claims to be your hardware profile. It will be a profile of your hardware after your system has recovered and rebooted, not what it was when the kernel panic occurred.

     

    This is all beside the point for me right now, since I haven't changed any of my hardware in weeks and this kernel panic has started happening only in the last week. I doubt it's hardware related, and suspect that it has more to do with the OS X 10.7.3 update. I just thought I'd explain the above make sure you understood why the hardware list was inaccurate.

     

    So, at this point I guess I need to reinstall Mac OS X. Was hoping it wouldn't come down to that.

    Linc Davis Level 10 Level 10 (118,030 points)

    I guess you must be right. The conclusion, however, is the same. Clearly the panic is not caused by third-party software. I suggest you reinstall the Mac OS. If the panics continue, you're dealing, as I wrote above, with an obscure bug or a subtle hardware fault. You should then look carefully at your configuration for anything unusual that might be triggering a bug. It can't be fonts, because add-on fonts are disabled in safe mode. That doesn't leave much that I can think of besides .xinitrc.

    Thanks, Linc, for your suggestions. I've never come across such a confounding problem in all my years of using OS X. Alas, I guess no OS is perfect! Well, here goes the reinstall...

    Don't know if you are aware of it but there is an Apple X11 mailling list.

     

    See https://lists.apple.com/mailman/listinfo/x11-users

     

    MIght be pf some help.

    I just thought I'd post an update. I tried reinstalling OS X Lion over top of my old installation. That didn't make any difference, X11 continued to crash as before.

     

    So then I installed Lion onto a separate external drive, and am now booting my Mac from that drive. This crazy bug isn't happening anymore! I most definitely have the latest version of Lion installed.

     

    I'm slowly copying over my apps, settings and documents from my old drive to this new one... so far so good. Thanks for the tips!

    mcavoys Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I have the exact same problem.. I've reinstalled to the same drive, same problem.

    Have no desire to install to an external drive though...

    Seems so strange this could cause a panic!

  • 12. Re: X11/Xquartz now inoperable, causes kernel panic, 100% reproducible
    vtowel Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Sorry to hear it, mcavoys. Basically I had to install OS X fresh, on a new drive - but you could also just reformat your current drive, and rely solely on your latest Time Machine backup to copy your data files over. If I let OS X installer try to 'restore' my old install in any way, then the X11 panic bug would return. Basically just had to carefully copy data files over manually. I know it's a drag!

    Stephen Gilardi Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    I saw this panic frequently on Lion and it was not fixed in Mountain Lion. I believe the analysis here is correct: http://openradar.appspot.com/12368202 . This needs a fix from an Apple engineer who works on the filesystem code in the kernel.

    saw this also from iTerm use.  I sent it as a report.
