Bug Description

I got this in my logs during the last kernel update. Stuff seems to work fine, altough these messages do not look good:

Running depmod.

Received lots of errors also installing latest kernel. Had to roll back to 3.2.0-27.

Does this kernel removed from repos? I received update on my laptop & kernel works without problems. Graphics is Intel integrated. On my desktop is Nvidia graphics & i don't received kernel update yet. Untill bug isn't fixed i won't install 3.2.0-29 on my desktop. I suppose this bug afected only machines with Nvidia or ATI graphic cards. Am I wright?
