Question Latest Ubuntu 8.10 kernel update is messed up


Hi,

since the rollout of the latest 8.10 kernel update (2.6.27-11) my machine has been very messy. During the update the initrd was not building (showing errors). I managed to build the initrd manually and then it worked for a while.

But since a few days the kernel fails again completely. It looks like many kernel-modules are not loading BUT dmesg & syslog do not show relevant errors.

The result is:
- no networking
- no cpu frequency scaling
- no nvidia driver (nv drivers works normal)
- .......

I have been on Linux since 2003 but have never seen this before.

Does anybody have hints or is experiencing the same?
