Latest Upgrade renders computer unbootable

Bug #106257 reported by Eugene Cormier on 2007-04-13

linux-source-2.6.20 (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.20-14-generic

After todays upgrade (April 12/13) I can't boot my laptop using the 2.6.20-14 kernel (confirmed for both generic and lowlatency kernels) although I can still boot using an older kernel (2.6.20-13 and 2.6.20-12) but then the nvidia driver doesn't work (I'm now using the nv module just to get into x)

Here's what happens when I try to boot the new kernel:
I see the usplash start, I see the progress meter start at the minimum position (it doesn't move from there at all)
my usb mouse starts, stops then starts again
and thats where the boot process hangs indefinitely

I'm not sure if this is a problem with the kernel, it could be a problem with one of the first boot process's, but I assume since it still boots with the older kernels that it most likely is a problem with the kernel

I have the same problem after the same kernel upgrade. I do not have a laptop, but a silent PC with an Intel Celeron CPU and the boot process stops after SCSI detection.

Thanks for the report, This seems to be a duplicate of #106063 - a new kernel is already on his way

Beginning with the Hardy Heron 8.04 development cycle, all open Ubuntu kernel bugs need to be reported against the "linux" kernel package. We are automatically migrating this bug to the new "linux" package. However, development has already began for the upcoming Intrepid Ibex 8.10 release. It would be helpful if you could test the upcoming release and verify if this is still an issue - . If the issue still exists, please update this report by changing the Status of the "linux" task from "Incomplete" to "New". We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make this transition. Thanks!
