Laptop Mode Tools

Bug Description

Installed Laptop-mode-tools on my HP Envy 6 Sleekbook, Ubuntu AM64 13.04. A segmentation fault was reported in the terminal window during the install, 20 seconds later my screen froze and I could not recover. Required a complete re-install. Was repeatable tried it 3 times. From what I could tell I could not boot as initrd.img and vmlinuz had 'Unknown links'. Recovered the 3rd tim by booting an N-2 kernel and then re-installing the latest kernel image.

Terminal log:

Same bug here, on a i7 13" macbook pro, Ubuntu 13.04.

Since I wasn't able to boot anymore neither, I used a bootable key to mount my partition and disable laptop-mode in /etc/laptop-mode/laptop-mode.conf file.
