Unable to upgrade to ubuntu 9.10 - Kernel panic
I have 64-bit Ubuntu 9.04 on my SUPERMICRO workstation. Upgrade to 9.10 failed displaying the black screen and a page-long report starting with the message: "Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init!". The computer freezes and you can not continue upgrade. The same happens when you try to install 9.10 from the ISO disk. I also tried to experiment with the 32-bit Ubuntu 9.10 installation disk. The problem was different, but result - the same. Computer freezes. I had to reinstall 9.04 and it works just fine.
