I have Lucid on one partition and Precise on another. These have both been working fine until this AM: when I select either 3.2.0-52 or 3.2.0-53 from the GRUB menu, I receive this:
init: ureadahead main process (239) terminated with status 5
My screen then freezes and I must power off manually.

The Precise data is intact and accessible via the Lucid partition.

I did search for a solution and found some references to a 'status 5' error related to /var in a non-standard location but that isn't the case with my system.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
