I'm having a serious issue with my kubuntu installation. Earlier today, I performed the following action:
sudo apt-get upgrade
At which point, it appears another kernel was installed, or at least something changed with my current kernel. The version that was installed is:2.6.12-10-386. The odd thing is: that was the kernel that I had already installed previously. I am not sure why this was at all updated, or changed. In fact, I don't really
know what happened with it, but I did see where apt-get printed out something about the kernel.
The problem is actually that when I restarted the laptop later: it hanged on boot up. I restarted the computer, and tried to boot with the safe recovery setting for this kernel (2.6.12-10-386). It froze at this line:
[xxxxxx:xxxxx] checking if image is initramfs
I've been looking around, and it looks like other people with an IBM Thinkpad T23 are having the same issue; and yeah, it's a Thinkpad T23 that I am having the trouble with. I've seen several reports, but no solutions.
I have seen where people have attempted to disable ACPI (not sure what the correlation is...) to solve this issue. ACPI is already disabled with my kernel config. In fact, these are the options that I am passing the kernel:
kernel /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-10-386 root=/dev/hda3 ro acpi=off noacpi apm=on quiet splash
I'm really stumped. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.
