Comment 55 for bug 445852

It actually seems that it gives a slightly different error message with the old kernel, but has a similar effect. This error with the old kernel only shows up after a dist-upgrade to karmic -- essentially a karmic install with the old 2.6.28 kernel

I am attaching three dmesg outputs.

dmesg.jaunty is before upgrading to karmic

dmesg.oldkern is directly after upgrading to karmic, but using the same kernel as before

dmesg.karmic is using the karmic kernel
