[Bug 272247] Re: System freezes during boot, unless I hold a key down

** Description changed:
Binary package hint: usplash
Once the Ubuntu splash screen loads with the progress bar that moves back and forth, it freezes. Holding down any key unfreezes the system, and it continues
loading normally, until I release the key, at which point it freezes again. Holding a key down again unfreezes the system again.
Pressing Alt+F1 to show the output also freezes, so I know it isn't just
the splash screen freezing, but the entire system.
Once X loads, it works perfectly fine though, and I don't have to keep
holding a key down.
Update : This bug happens with 2.6.26 and 2.6.27 kernels with a computer
that has Nvidia MCP67 motherboard. A known workaround that sometime
works is to add nolapic to GRUB boot kernel options.
DistroRelease: Ubuntu 8.10
NonfreeKernelModules: wl nvidia
Package: usplash 0.5.23
Uname: Linux 2.6.27-3-generic x86_64
Possible systems affected include:
HP Pavilion DV6620es
Compaq Presario F700
Sony Vaio PCG-GRT-815E - from the Mandriva errata
+ HP DV6745us - from a duplicate
