Bug Description

Binary package hint: linux-image-2.6.24-18-generic

Ubuntu release: 8.04
Main problem: touchpad not found (no mouse), graphics card not found (goes back to vesa), no ACPI working.

On my (new) Toshiba satellite L40-17O:

linux-image-2.6.24-16 (from the live CD and installed) worked fine.
linux-image-2.6.24-17 and 2.6.24-18 don't work: graphical card (965GM) not recognised (loads vesa), touchpad not found (so no mouse), none of the ACPI lines appear in the kernel messages log.

To compare, below is the (good) 2.6.24-16 /var/log/messages and the (bad) 2.6.24-18 text.

Full story:
linux-image-2.6.24-16 (from the live CD) worked fine, also when installed.
June 5th I upgraded to linux-image-2.6.24-18, and everything still worked fine.

However, today (june 8th), while listening to rhythmbox and setting the time zone one hour back, the system became non-responsive (rhythmbox kept on playing, could move mouse, but couldn't do antyhing, alt-ctrl-F1 didn't react, etc).

Rebooted several times into 2.6.24-18 (it worked before, I thought it couldn't be the problem), tried to remove batteries etc, but nothing worked. Then tried live CD, that did work. Now I've tried going back and fourth between 2.6.24-16, 17, 18, and -16 consistently is the only one that sees my hardware properly.

/var/log/messages for 2.6.24-18 (bad, 2.6.24-17 is very smilar):
