Anyone has an idea what may be causing this?
my stupid 2007 box does that if I press <esc><esc> before the splash
screen tell you can do so, then it freezes on the clock, otherwise it does not.
Maybe unrelated to yours
Also can be symptoms of PCI or AGP card not well in place in slots
This one doesnt freeze. It uses /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-12mdk
looks indeed like it is a configuration issue rather than my
not so relevant experience above
