    Memory Problem. Your profile shows 8GB for your mini. If you look at each of your posted crash logs, you will see at the bottom that only BANK0/DIMM0 is reporting 4GB. BANK1/DIMM1 should also be reported with 4GB. It is missing.


    What does About this Mac and the System Information utility report for total memory and Slot status?


    I would remove and reseat both memory modules. Maybe reset PRAM and SMC just for thoroughness.


    Then re-evaluate stability. If problems persist, you may have to replace memory in Bank 1.

    Hey, that's my bad for not giving more detail. During the initial reports I had only had the one stick in. Now, both are in, getting the same python crashes and 8GB are reported.

    Did you disable I believe that it is originating the GoogleSoftwareUpdate process that seems to be consistently the parent process for these crashes.


    Did you create a new account, and see if these issues continue while logged into that account?

    Okay, removed all items from ~Library/LaunchAgent and ~Library/LaunchDaemon -- both included a Also removed all items from preferences > user > login items. Still no luck. pops up as soon as I login.


    Created a new test account with admin priveledges, logged in and the python error/crash does NOT pop up.

    So, I got the itch to uninstall googlesoftwareupdate, by using a python command and I get the same popup, but with the problem report below...


    command i ran:

    % ~/Library/Google/GoogleSoftwareUpdate/GoogleSoftwareUpdate.bundle/Contents/Reso urces/ --uninstall


    Trace/BPT trap

    Tell me again why you need that, and it needs to remain installed? Seems like you now have a zero wait crash report generator. Perhaps that has incompatible or missing dependencies.


    Andy change if you ran it with sudo?

    Thanks guys!


    Was a bad RAM module. Had to reinstall all the system files after I removed the module again. All is good now.

    Well, it is about time ... . Good job.

    clandons can you tell me how you determined it was the memory after all.  I have the same python problem but when I run the apple hardware test at boot it shows everything good

    Hello owatagoosiam,


    You know, there was no clear test I ran that gave it away. When running the apple hardware test with the bad stick only, it took a LONG time to complete, but it did complete and came back okay. With the good stick, it was quicker.


    Another sign was when re-installing software it just would not work. After removing the suspect module, reinstall worked fine and since the libraries were all refreshed by the install, I've had no problems since.

    Hi Clandons,

    I'm getting the same problem. Can you please help me solve it? I read through all the comments but I'm not exactly able to point out how you fixed it.

    Thanks so much!

  • clandons Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Have you run any tests? I suggest running the apple hardware test with both sticks of ram, then one and then the other. See how the tests turn out. If one acts up then you can probably assume that stick of ram is bad.


    If you do find a bad stick, just reinstall software so it refreshes all your libraries, after you remove/replace the suspect ram.


    Now, saying this, I'm not exacty sure what system you are running and what exact problems you are having.


    Obviously, if you have apple care, take it their way and tell them you suspect bad ram.

    No, I havent run any tests.


    I'm using a 4GB RAM on a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5 Macbook Pro with Mac OSX mountain lion.

    It is only a few months old, so I could take it to Apple Care. It's funny because I had python working this morning but I suddenly started getting these error logs just an hour back.

  • clandons Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Are you having other issues? Any odd stuff going on?

  • sumrania Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Not really. ipython works from the terminal but I've been trying to use it on some IDE and it just crashes.
