Bug Description

Precise i386 logged as gnome-classic

Having some troubles with boot/reboot process, i've removed "quiet splash" from boot line to get the verbose mode.
When i shutdown the system, i get the error above : latest 2 lines before it completly shutdown. After googling about this message, it seems related to usb devices plugged ; on this system they are two : a HP 4585 printer (power down) and a ps2 keyboard with usb adaptor.

I cant see other warning/error while shuting down that system. But the bad effects are:
- reboot never works
- 1st cold boot ends with a kernel panic and the keyboard is lost
- 2nd cold try to boot also fail: often dont get a post, or if i can get the boot line then it seems receiving a stop order
- 3rd cold boot succeed

note that this trouble is not very new, it exist since we use the kernel 3 series

Can you post a screen shot of the panic?

Also, would it be possible for you to test the latest upstream kernel? Refer to . Please test the latest v3.3 kernel[1] (Not a kernel in the daily directory). Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please remove the 'needs-upstream-testing' tag(Only that one tag, please leave the other tags). 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.

If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tag 'kernel-fixed-upstream'.

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the tag: 'kernel-bug-exists-upstream'.

If you are unable to test the mainline kernel, for example it will not boot, please add the tag: 'kernel-unable-to-test-upstream'.
Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug as "Confirmed".

Thanks in advance.

hi Joseph,

the kernel panic is always with a black screen, so should i post it ?
As Precise will not have the 3.3 kernel serie, then this issue has to be fixed with the LTS kernel. As said this issue is not new and all around the net.

We ask to test the 3.3 kernel to see if it is fixed upstream. If it is fixed, we can cherry pick the fix into precise, or many times the fix will make it into Precise through the stable updates upstream.

Kernel upstream tested:
- still get the first cold boot failling
- with the nvidia 295.33 + xorg 1.12 + kernel 3.3 and the latest Precise updates, now i dont get the verbose mode: the screen is fully black, so i cant say if the kernel upstream have solved that bug error or not.

Ok got the verbose mode again on shutting down the system, and see again this error ( 2 last lines ) with the upstream kernel; so its still an issue. Tagged as such.

tags: added: kernel-bug-exists-upstream
Joseph Salisbury (jsalisbury) wrote :

This issue appears to be an upstream bug, since you tested the latest upstream kernel. Would it be possible for you to open an upstream bug report at [1]? That will allow the upstream Developers to examine the issue, and may provide a quicker resolution to the bug.

If you are comfortable with opening a bug upstream, It would be great if you can report back the upstream bug number in this bug report. That will allow us to link this bug to the upstream report.

The last time i made a shutdown i was able to see an additional comment after this error reported above:

hub_port_status failed error (-110)
acpi_power_off called

wonder if that acpi call is made too late or not.

Thanks for taking the time to report this bug in the upstream bug tracking system this is a tremendous help. Launchpad has the ability to watch lots of upstream bug trackers and this can be done by following the procedure documented at I've added the bug watch for this bug report.
