    Intermittent hangs during boot after upgrade - 'still angry after 101 spins"

    I have Intermittent hangs during boot after upgrade to 13.04.

    Sometimes a black screen, sometimes the first Ubuntu screen incomplete, but most notably sometimes this message
    - 'still angry after 101 spins, halt"

    It is now running, so I can look at log files if someone can point me in the right direction.

    I had problems with Ubuntu 12.04 earlier, and thought Xubuntu might be a better choice. See my earlier problem, which could be relevant: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2148929

    Hardware:
    Home built PC, no HW changes for a long time.
    AMD X2 processor
    ATI HD 5450 1 GB graphics card

    Help!

    Where do I go from here? Where do I look?

    I would appreciate some advice.

    I re-installed, seemed clean enough, did a reboot and again:
    "still angry after 101 spins"
    Rebooted again, and it worked.

    Has anyone an idea on where to look?

    I still have boot problems. Normally after 3 or 4 boots it starts up OK.

    Another common boot error message (other than the one above) contains the phrase:

    ... DMA_Pusher-ch 0 get ...

    Where should I be looking in my logs? What do I look for?

    I'm beginning to believe it is the 'nouveau' driver.

    Is this my problem?
