    HOWTO: boot maverick on a Toshiba NB series laptop

    Hello,

    A lot of us Toshiba users (and some lenovo users have been having trouble getting ubuntu online due to a powersaving bug. This bug still exists in the final release, and thus I'm writing this HOWTO for anyone who is having trouble getting started.


    After a fresh install of maverick:

    1 - When booting, hold left shift to access the grub menu. (If you have a dual-boot setup, then the menu might show up automatically)

    2 - Highlight the ubuntu entry and press e to edit the options.

    3 - Add 'intel_idle.max_cstate=0' after the words 'quiet splash'

    4 - Hit ctrl-x to boot the computer.

    5 - Once you've booted into ubuntu, press alt-F2 to open a run dialog and enter
    Code:
    gksu gedit /etc/default/grub
    6 - look for the line that reads
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash"
    this should be the 9th line. Modify it to read:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash intel_idle.max_cstate=0"
    7 - Save the file and exit.

    8 - Open a terminal and type the following:
    Code:
    sudo update-grub
    This is all the steps. Now everytime you boot the computer, this option will be active.

    This did just the trick. My boot times on a Toshiba NB205 were at about 10 minutes. I couldn't figure it out. This simple changed fixed me up. We are back to 30ish seconds.

    Thanks
