Bug Description

Dear Ubuntu Developers!

My friend is a blind person, but he would like using Ubuntu. You have'nt got braille display.
I is a blind person, and can not help he's problem, because impossible help he's problem with remote.

He's computer configuration is:
CPU type: Intel Celeron 4A, 2400 MHz (6 x 400)
Motherboard: Asus P4V800-X (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 3 DIMM, Audio, LAN)
Motherboard chipset: VIA VT8763 Apollo PT800
System memory: 1024 MB (DDR SDRAM)
BIOS type: Asus AMI (11/12/03)
Communication ports: Com1, NetMos PCI ECP Parallel Port (LPT3)
Graphics card: NVIDIA GeForce2 MX/MX 400 (Microsoft Corporation) (64 MB)
Soundcard: C-Media CMI8738/C3DX Audio Device

When he tryed booting Hardy or Intrepid live cd, the following situation is present he's computer configuration:
Nine numbers changed lot of time, after the nine number the following error messages is displayed:
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 0
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 1
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 2
Buffer I/O error on device sr0, logical block 3
And the finish, before the Busybox shell, the following error message is displayed:
End_request: I/O error, defsr0, sector 0
This simptoms repeated some minutes, and the finish:
BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:1.10.2-1 ubuntu6) built-in shell (ash) Enter 'help' for a list of built-in commands. (initramfs)

This simptoms produce Hardy and Intrepid live cd's same. This is a critical bug my openion, please solve it is possible, or please send any ideas how can we solve this problem. Ubuntu is a very good accessible Linux distribution, but if the user have'nt got sighted assistand and have'nt got a braille display, the user can not solve this problem.

Hi Attila,

This bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an issue? Can you try with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO CD images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/karmic .

If it remains an issue, could you run the following command from a Terminal (Applications->Accessories->Terminal). It will automatically gather and attach updated debug information to this report.

apport-collect -p linux 282526

Also, if you could test the latest upstream kernel available that would be great. It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Refer to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds . Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag. This can be done by clicking on the yellow pencil icon next to the tag located at the bottom of the bug description and deleting the 'needs-upstream-testing' text. Please let us know your results.

Thanks in advance.
