Hello all, I am wondering on even how to debug this issue. My machine has been running fine, except for some nouveau/kernel issue which seemed to go away in the latest kernels.
But the very last kernel update (3.1.6-1) grub gets stuck at "Loading initial ramdisk" message. I sellected the earlier kernel from grub menu but that get stuck at same point too! So maybe it is not a kernel problem after all.
At the grub menu I can get to grub's command line mode. But do not know what to do for debuging.
By the way, My laptop did not suffer from this issue. Got the updates and booted fine.
