Have you continued to notice this issue ?
Would be nice to see the surrounding log events if so:
grep -C 2 protection /var/log/messages*
Comment 2 Alexey Kuznetsov 2009-05-10 07:02:02 EDT
sorry no macbook anymore :(

> sorry no macbook anymore :(  
OK, testing your memory then: are the dates/times the log shows suggest that it was during kernel boot that the gp error occurred, or was it during normal use ? Was it at the time you opened / closed the screen ?
Perhaps when inactivity triggered a low power mode (ie dimming backlight) ?
Or entering / exiting sleep/hibernate ?
Comment 4 Alexey Kuznetsov 2009-05-17 03:24:40 EDT
oh oh oh...

as i remember i do not use dimming backlight, because it was eyes killer - too fast dim screen on room light changes. i was disable it.

i used my macbook for whole linux time, and love suspend/resume cyles. i remember crash never happens immediately, only after several hours/days of work.

I unable to find right steps when i used it. As u can see from logs i turned my machine on for 2 days and got 1 crashes for that period.

Really i have macbook pro in my house, but i unable to install linux on it anymore. My macbook model do not support usb booting (external cd, usbflash) and my built-in cdrom was died. Unfortunely i have switched to mac os x for work and brought new msi notebook for home linux usage.

Any questions, i glad to respond.

Based on your last comment you are no longer able to test this with your MacBook Pro.  I am closing this bug as Insufficient Data, if you can get your MacBook to boot into fedora again and experience this issue please open a new bug.
