Package: linux-2.6 Version: 2.6.32-5 Severity: grave Justification: renders package unusable None of the linux-image-2.6.32-trunk-amd64 packages, since they reached unstable, ever booted successfully on my laptop. X system darkens the screen and hangs the computer completely (i.e. cannot even switch to the console via Ctrl-Alt-F1), as soon as the booting process reaches KDM; Alt-SysRq-B works though.[...] Does this machine have 4 GB RAM (or more)? If you add 'mem=3500M' to the kernel command line, does this avoid the problem?
You are twice correct, Ben. 4 Gb, and mem=3500M fixes the problem.
As this seems a known issue can you please refer me to the original problem (and maybe close this as duplicate, if no other bug-related data is needed from me)?
