    Kernel 3.5 not booting

    Hello.

    I recently upgraded to 12.10, but I'm stuck on kernel 3.2.0-32. When booting the newest kernel I get only this on my screen:

    Loading Linux 3.5.0-17-generic...
    Loading initial ramdisk...

    And my computer is completely stuck at that point. The only way to make it respond is to forcefully power it off and on again.
    I read on this forum that 3.5.0-17 was buggy and I should try 3.5.0-18 from quantal-proposed. The result, however, was exactly the same:

    Loading Linux 3.5.0-18-generic...
    Loading initial ramdisk...

    And stuck again.
    Recovery mode on both kernels, though, is working fine.

    Is there any way I can make the new kernels boot, or am I stuck on 3.2.0-32 for the time being?

    i would suggest to check dkms installation and watch the logs to finf usefull warnings/errors. Whats happen when you try booting 3.5 in recovery mode then select "repair package"

    It prints "/dev/sda3: clean, ##/## files, ##/## blocks" and then does nothing until I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, at which point it reboots.

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install linux
    does that give you any errors?
    you can try the 3.6.3 kernel (installer attached)

    Re: Kernel 3.5 not booting

    there is a install script (named install) in the archive, run that in a terminal
    What do these command give you
    Code:
    readlink /initrd.img
    readlink /initrd.img.old
    readlink /vmlinuz
    readlink /vmlinuz.old
