ROTFLMAO! Well good. I was just trying to do KMS reseach... with emphasis on "trying"... when I saw your post. KMS ia very bleak on documentation anywhere that I can find so far. I can't seem to get anyone to talk about it from the dev area, the documentation team or the kernel team... But I did spent a few moments on the Kernel Team's blog to see that they are trying to get through 984 kernel bugs with natty!

(Curious how Gnome 3.x is going to turn out.)
Happy to hear that the proposed kernel 2.6.38-9 worked out for you. If you look at this:
The above instructions also work to try out the kernels in the mainline ppo that are not released yet.- If you follow the mainline ppa's "link" above and follow those links to the kernel v2.6.39-rcx-natty, such as here:
Please subscribre/join this Launchpad bug:
Because it sounds as you are affected by it, along with a few more from here:
The more peope affected we can get to join this bug, the more weight is going to be leveraged for them to fic it (hoping).
The instructions for rolling back to an earleir natty kernel are in this post:
The link for the kernel mainline ppa is here:
Follow the naming convention there for the natty kernels and whether i386 (32bit) or AMD64 (64bit) and follow the instructions in post 2. Basically, you would just click on and install the following .deb's in this order:
linux-headers-XXXXXX_i386.deb (if you have 64bit, choose amd64 version)
linux-image-XXXXXX_i386.deb (if you have 64bit, choose amd64 version)
If you click on the link for that file and install in that order = success.
Well, when we were testing Natty beta1 and beta2, some us were testing natty using the 2.6.39 release candidates (and loving it). We "were" told about a couple weeks before natty "released" that 2.6.39 was not planned to be released with Natty (11.04), but rather wait for Oneric (11.10)... but if it works for you , go for it.
Please ensure that you join the bug mentioned in this post (above), so that The LP Bug Team knows that it "affects" people and needs to be resolved.
