Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.22-14-generic

booting the ubuntu 7.10 install cd (or an upgraded system) with kernel 2.6.22-14-generic ends with kernel panic

if i add the option acpi=off to the kernel parameters it will boot.

kernel 2.6.22-14-rt works okay without acpi=off parameter

The Hardy Heron kernel was recently uploaded for testing. We'd really appreciate it if you could try testing with this newer kernel and verify if this issue still exists. Unfortunately, the Hardy Heron Alpha1 LiveCD was released with the older 2.6.22 kernel. You'll have to manually install the newer Hardy Heron kernel in order to test. This should not be the case for Alpha2 which is set to come out around Dec 20. However, here are the instructions to install if you choose to do so, otherwise just wait for Alpha2 to come out:

1) edit the file /etc/apt/sources.list and add the following line:

deb http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu hardy main restricted

2) sudo apt-get update
3) sudo apt-get install linux-image-2.6.24-1-generic
4) reboot and select the new kernel from the grub menu

After you've tested, please feel free to revert back - ie boot into the old kernel, sudo apt-get remove linux-image-2.6.24-1-generic, and remove the line from /etc/apt/sources.list . Please update this report with your results. Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the update. I'm glad to hear the newer kernel works for you. It's unlikely that a fix will be backported, but I'll reassign to the kernel team for their consideration. Thanks.
