I have upgraded from Ubuntu 8.04 to 8.10 today (via update manager, as described on the website) and everything seemed to work fine.
Until the system needed to reboot.
The boot process gets stuck at:
"Configuring network interfaces..."
On top of the "boot log" it says:
"Loading hardware drivers .... Fail"
All the other "checkpoints" seem to be fine since it puts an [OK] next to each one.
Apparently he does recognise the keyboard, because i can use it to type.
Pressin Ctrl+Alt+Del seems to drive on the boot process a little further but it gets stuck again at:
"1052.751899 pan0: Dropping NETIF_F_UFO since no NETIF_F_HW_CSUM feature."
Please help! I am writing from another maching but I it is extremely important for me to get my Ubuntu PC working again, as I have a lot of non-backuped files on there.
