That doesn't look good. It points to an addressing problem in memory or

this only happens when you're doing texture - and that's not a happy
thing when dealing with O2s.
Since you say it lived through replacing RAM and a reinstall of the OS,
it's most certainly a hardware problem - and since the graphics chipset
of an O2 is on the systemboard, the only recourse is to replace the
I could be wrong, but my gut doesn't steer me wrong too often.
