Jaunty 2.6.28 kernel freezing during boot installation (ACPI detection?)

Bug Description

(Google translator portuguese to english. Sorry!)

During the boot to start the installation of Jaunty (kernel 2.6.28) the kernel hangs during the hardware detection on my computer (maybe acpi). The installation does not continue in any way.

In the attached file the output of lspci.

In the attached file the output of dmesg.

Image of the kernel freeze (continue) - Call trace.

This problem (freezing) does not let me install Ubuntu Jaunty. If I choose to pass the kernel parameters "noapic" for example, the boot continues, but the detection problem is the resolution of my video card, the resolution is low (low resolution "800x600" when the correct would be "1208x1024").

Summary of my hardware configuration:
Motherboard - ASUS P5VD2-X
Processor - Pentium 4 HT

More details in attached file.

Hi Rodrigo,

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/ .

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 371980

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.

The bug isn't present in current versions of the kernel. I use Karmic the same PC and everything is working properly.

I believe that the bug can be closed.
