Question Boot freezes with 2.6.35-31 generic-pae on Ubuntu 10.04


Hello everyone, happy 2012 by the way.

I'm using Ubuntu 10.04 and I'm trying to boot kernel 2.6.35-31 generic-pae. Everything seems to go fine until this line

Code:
udev: starting version 151
There the booting process freezes, and it doesn't go on at all.

Version 2.6.35-30 generic present this same problem too. But 2.6.35-25 generic works. It's funny, isn't it? Why is it that the newer versions stop working at that point? How could I fix this?

Thank you very much in advance

Can you post 2.6.35-25 generic and 2.6.35-30 generic boot-up message?

Thanks for helping nini09!

What is exactly the generic boot-up message? Where can I find it to post it?

Sorry for my ignorance, thanks again.

For good one, 2.6.35-25 generic, dmsg command can dump all boot-up message.
For bad one, 2.6.35-30 generic, maybe on the screen only because boot-up is failure, writing down screen if you can.

Question

Hi

here I attached the complete output of dmesg from the working 2.6.35-25 generic as a text file (it's too big to post it here).

And I've also attached a screen cap of the output of the 2.6.35-30 generic (which is exactly the same as it is shown when trying to run 2.6.35-31 generic-pae). I got it by removing quiet and adding verbose to the kernel booting arguments.

As you will see, after the udev message, it says something like "loading init scripts" which I think seems odd (I don't have such thing as folder /scripts).

It's strange isn't it? What could you tell me to do to fix this?

Thank you very much.

PS: Funny thing, after trying to boot those kernels (30 or 31) a couple of times, this line was automatically added to the booting arguments: crashkernel=384M-2G:64M,2G-:128M
But the same error persists.

It look like one driver of new kernel, maybe USB or Ethernet, has some bug on your machine to cause boot-up failure and try loading image again like you mentioned running init-script again.
You can stay in old one and wait next update or search Ubuntu bug database to see whether they fix it.

What did I mention? which init-script? Sorry for my ignorance.

I guess I'll stick with the old one, and wait until an update with a fix is released.

Should I report the bug? or perhaps it is already reported?

It is better to report a bug because you can trace it and know when the issue is fixed. But you will have more job to do. You have to isolate which driver cause the issue.
