This kernel fails to boot for me. X never really appears and Alt+SysReq options fail. I just get a truly "blank screen" with no blinking cursor or anything. I tried apport-collect after booting back into "-27" but it fails with the error:

Error showing url: Failed to execute child process "/opt/firefox/firefox" (No such file or directory)

Other than providing my hardware specs I'm not sure what else you'd need.

JetWay JATOM-GM1-230-LF Motherboard
Intel Atom 230 CPU @ 1.60GHz
System Memory 2GB DIMM
Intel 82945G/GZ Integrated Graphics
Intel N10/ICH 7 Family High Def Audio Controller

I have even tried recovery mode/single and I don't see any apparent errors, but the common options following a recovery boot never appear. I'll be glad to provide any logs requested but keep it simple. I'm a dummy when it comes to kernel bugs.

I spent some time this AM giving this a closer look and one of the first things I tried was removing "quiet splash" from the kernel boot parameters thinking that may provide some clues, but doing so resulted in a successful boot. Restoring the "quiet splash" once again resulted in a failed boot.

Now, I've been fiddling with 'grub-customizer' for a few weeks:

Since I multi-boot, I next tried booting the new kernel using a different OS's grub and it succeeded every time. Then I purged grub-customizer, grub-pc and grub-common - and also rm -R'ed both /etc/grub.d and /boot/grub. After reinstalling grub-pc all seems fine.

That is I can no longer reproduce the failed boot so I can only assume that some custom mods I'd made to the grub 2 configuration broke things. Sorry for the false alarm.

Hardware Certification has completed testing 75 systems and no regressions were found. Results can be found here:

We ran the QA regression test suite on the proposed Maverick kernel and did not encounter any regression with it, full results are available at: Following the workflow, i'm marking this as verification-done, Thanks all.
