Accepted linux into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!

This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed' to 'verification-done'.

If verification is not done by Thursday, November 11, this fix will be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you!

Due to national holidays, the deadline for verification of fixes for the -proposed kernel has been extended thru Monday, November 15th.

If verification that this bug is fixed by the -proposed kernel has not occurred by that date, the change will be reverted and this bug will be set to incomplete.

If you have tested the kernel in -proposed and found that it fixes the bug on the original hardware, please change the bug tag "verification-needed" to "verification-done".

The new stable kernel release process under which these actions are being taken is still being refined, and is documented here:

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Kernel/StableReleaseCadence

Discussions about the new process tend to take place in #ubuntu-kernel on IRC, so please contribute to the discussion there if you would like.

Thank you!

Ebenezer, so this proposed kernel solved the problem? Was it on Lucid or Maverick?

Thank you very much for your report!

Ebenezer,
    We need to know what version you are seeing the fix on. If we do not get the verification we need, then this fix will be reverted on the released version and others encountering your issue will not be fixed. Please respond back as soon as you can on which version you saw the fix work on.

Thanks!

Ebenezer Jeyaraja, 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? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

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

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:
kernel-fixed-upstream
kernel-fixed-upstream-VERSION-NUMBER

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:
kernel-fixed-upstream-v3.13-rc5

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:
needs-upstream-testing

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:
kernel-bug-exists-upstream
kernel-bug-exists-upstream-VERSION-NUMBER

As well, please remove the tag:
needs-upstream-testing

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your understanding.
