[hardy] Fails to boot on Acer laptop
Nominated for 8.04 by Nanley Chery
I installed Wubi (Ubuntu Daily Live 04-07-08) on my Acer Aspire 3000.
I upon selecting Ubuntu from the boot menu, ACPI error messages appear then usplash loads.
Usplash freezes 1/6th of the way.
Nothing will restart or shutdown the computer except for unplugging the laptop.
ACPI: EC: acpi_ec_wait timeout, status = 10, expect_event = 2
ACPI: EC: input buffer is not empty, aborting transaction
i8042.c: Can't read CTR while initializing i8042.
I booted into windows, then rebooted into Ubuntu.
Now the boot goes all the way into GDM, but I am unable to type anything.
Once again, the only way to turn off the lappie is by unplugging it.
