Hi,

Just curious if the 3.0.0-8.10 kernel was able to boot? I want to narrow down the the window where the regression was likely introduced. The 3.0.0-8.10 i386 deb can be found at:

https://launchpad.net/ubuntu/oneiric/i386/linux-image-3.0.0-8-generic/3.0.0-8.10

You'll want to uninstall the 3.0.0-8.11 kernel prior to installing the 3.0.0-8.10 kernel to ensure you really do boot into the 3.0.0-8.10 kernel to test. Please let us know your results. Thanks.

That's strange... Now It boots (i tried twice):

I made this mistake because the boot was longer as usually and with a lot of errors.

I think we can close the bug.

Well, i don't think so... I have twice the bug now.

I have a lot of line:
udevd[116]: failed to execute '/lib/udev/input_id' 'input_id /devices/virtual/input/mice': No such file or directory

Then black screen (with no disk access)
CTRL+ALT+Suppr wort to reboot.
A long press on the button on/off works to shutdown.
A small press on the button on/off has no effect.

After 2 bad tries, the kernel now boots. i doesn't hope it's a hardware problem...

try this in terminal type

sudo cp /etc/default/grub /etc/default/grub.backup
and
sudo nano /etc/default/grub or
sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

then change to look like this

GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi=off"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

you must add "acpi=off" whit the "quite splash"
type in terminal

sudo update grub

then restart computer that works for me

This problem with shutdown is caused by acpi=off parameter.

ACPI is responsible for powering your PC off, so when you disable ACPI, you have to turn your PC off manually. It's not a bug.

(But inability to boot with ACPI enabled is a kernel bug.)
