I found that if I disabled the proprietary graphic card and with the the
open-source all works well except  the cuda drivers.  If you are using
Blender, you are out of luck with the graphic decelerators.

  Boot blocks after message fsck from util-linux

Status in util-linux package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: util-linux

  System installed into re-formatted ext3 filesystem, no upgrade. (I
  know I'm testing a beta distribution)

  Upon installation the boot went OK, after which I've upgraded the
  system (apt-get update; apt-get upgrade). After that all normal boots
  keep blocking while displaying the same message. I've left the system
  as is for a longer period, but no progress is made.

  I'm only able to access the system via "recovery mode" and then first

  Text displayed on the monitor:
  fsck from util-linux-ng 2.17.2
  /dev/sda1: clean, ...

  It could off course be the program after fsck is blocking.
