Bug Description

Who killed my beloved Kubuntu? :-)
Yesterday 11 Marts my shiny Kubuntu Vivivd
was rocking better than Momma.
But then a new kernel update and wam bam sorry Mam, wont boot.
Hmm installed again from latest kubuntu-15.04-beta1-desktop-amd64.iso.
After install and reboot all was fine and then after dist-upgrade it
died again.
I tryed holding shift during boot to get rescue mode this also was dead.

It dies early in the boot process with the console writing:

starting version 219
[OK] Started LSB: daemonn to balance ....
[OK] Started Bluetooth service.
[OK] Reached target Bluetooth.

And then it is all dead in the water.
Running on Imac mid 2011

So someone did something nasty one of the last days
