[Bug 1364630] Re: init: Error while reading from descriptor: Broken pipe


I'm also having this. It started on 14.04 but has got significantly
worse on the upgrade to 14.10 - it is intermittent. It would happen only
occasionally on 14.04 but now happens almost all the time on 14.10. I
have nVidia graphics but am using nouveau. What's particularly bad about
this in my case (Sony VAIO laptop) is that when it happens my ethernet
port completely stops working, it's not even detected (doesn't show up
in lspci), making my laptop almost useless.
