For sure, I would like to help. However I need some hints, what will be the
oldest kernel to try first? Also I am not sure that Ubuntu works with vanilla
kernel, but I guess it's ok at least if I want only single user mode, and no
specific things (I don't want to reinstall my notebook). Current kernel of
natty (at least what is on the notebook) is 2.6.38, previous ubuntu version
used 2.6.35, which seems to work. So should I try to compile kernels between 35
and 38 to try to find at least the "main" kernel version which already works?
(I guess the exact problem would need to find the exact patch what cause this
then). It requires some kernel compilation, no doubts :) I will try this, but
maybe no sooner than next week. Thanks for your suggestion.
