As aus9 indicated the problem is now with the kernel and not the boot loader.

I generally do not worry about the kernel too much as the distro is not in its final release and bugs are expected. If the Linux manages its task well and able to boot then that release is working to me. I suppose my view with the Linux is a bit different because I always have a handful to choose from.

Thanks sysg00.

Sorry for the delay but there IS something to be said for a vacation with no connectivity. :-)

I did some more checking and discovered something. When the system hangs, I get no /var/log/dmesg file for that time. The system must crash before the log file is written.

Yep, that looks like a pretty good candidate. Plymouth .... what a surprise.
Just curious what I should do about this. I was thinking about loading debian to see if I have similar problems. Do you know if debian uses plymouth.

PS I tried to change to title to delete the reference to grub but I am not sure I was successful. ;-(

since you use Ubuntu might like to stop plymouth loading using a graphical manager called bum....this is not a joke!

Naturally use root powers to run it.

OK, I finally got the time to check this out a bit further.

I loaded debian and performed multiple re-boots and never saw the problem. I plan to do several more reboots just to prove it but, I am convinced the problem is specific to ubuntu 10.04 and not a hardware problem.

I think the proper thing to do is to close this thread and take the problem to the ubuntu forums.

Thanks again for the help.
