[Bug 572868] Re: Lucid Live CD/USB freezes shortly after start


Ruben Verhack, this bug was reported a while ago and there hasn't been
any activity in it recently. We were wondering if this is still an
issue? If so, could you please test for this with the latest development
release of Ubuntu? ISO images are available from
http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/ .

If it remains an issue, could you please run the following command in
the development release from a Terminal
(Applications->Accessories->Terminal), as it will automatically gather
and attach updated debug information to this report:

apport-collect -p linux <replace-with-bug-number>

Also, could you please test the latest upstream kernel available (not the daily folder) following https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelMainlineBuilds ? It will allow additional upstream developers to examine the issue. Once you've tested the upstream kernel, please comment on which kernel version specifically you tested. If this bug is fixed in the mainline kernel, please add the following tags:

where VERSION-NUMBER is the version number of the kernel you tested. For example:

This can be done by clicking on the yellow circle with a black pencil icon next to the word Tags located at the bottom of the bug description. As well, please remove the tag:

If the mainline kernel does not fix this bug, please add the following tags:

As well, please remove the tag:

Once testing of the upstream kernel is complete, please mark this bug's
Status as Confirmed. Please let us know your results. Thank you for your

  Lucid Live CD/USB freezes shortly after start

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:

  I downloaded the ubuntu lucid amd64 final iso and did the sha256sum. I
  created a live USB and also burned the iso on a disc. Both produced
  the same error:

  When I let it boot from the USB/CD it shows the purple splash with the
  "keyboard equals human"-icon, after that goes onto a black screen with
  a blinking cursor. When using the CD you can hear the CD spin down and
  no activity on the laptop.

  When I press the keyboard while booting, I can choose different
  options, options "try ubuntu", "install ubuntu" and "check for errors"
  all fail in the same way.

  As I'm not able to do much, I can't use apport or read logs (unless
  there is a way to do so?) I'll put as much information about this
  laptop as I'm able to find:

  Intel® Core™ Duo T6600
  (2.20 Ghz - 2 MB L2 cache)
  15.6" LED widescreen
  WXGA (1366 x 768 pixels)
  Mobile GM45 chipset
  VGA: Mobile Intel® GMA 4500MHD
  And it has currently Windows 7 installed

  Thanks for reading this bug report, and hopefully this can be fixed?

  EDIT: little detail though: when it hangs, I can reboot by pressing
  ctrl - alt - printScr - B
