[Bug 1506845] Re: Suspected Race Condition on boot


Regarding the software issues, yes. Certain programs, such Citrix
netscaler gateway, which is used by my corporate workplace for VPN
depends on libproxy1, but the version available as of 15.10 is
libproxy1v5, and if I force install libproxy1, it forces other software
to be removed through dependency on libproxy1v5.

But, that is a separate issue, and Citrix should address that dependency
problem, and it is not a fault of Ubuntu.

So for now, I'm running a VirtualBox version of Ubuntu 14 which have
this problem, as it uses libproxy1

  Suspected Race Condition on boot

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu Vivid using stock install, no additional configs, on a dual
  boot (Ubuntu + Win7)

  When booting, my laptop will sometimes boot successfully, sometimes
  not, and sometimes, will reboot. Using CTRL+ALT+F1 to get to terminal
  shows me a console flood for Nouveau (sometimes) and sometimes not.
  Sometimes I see messages about firmware not being used/installed.

  I cannot reliably replicate this problem, but I have had similar
  problems running Fedora on this machine with similar console floods,
  which points further up to the upstream kernel.

  I suspect it is a race condition, as if I can see the console flood,
  the laptop often boots successfully, but if I don't I either get a
  kernel panic or a self-reboot.

  Can provide more information/HW details if needed (but not at the machine right now)
