Hi folks,

Been running 12.04 64 bit (XFCE desktop) since about May, and have been pretty satisfied. Lately my usual update path of command-line "apt-get update, apt-get upgrade" has been hanging after building the initramfs image and while adding entries to the grub menu - specifically, it can't seem to get past "Memtest86". The last time I tried this, the apt utilities suggested running "dpkg --configure -a", but that is hanging in the same place.

Any suggestions?
