I cant reboot using the GDM icon. I just use the console (reboot, halt, etc)

Mine doesnt take 30, but a good 6-10 secs.

The only kernels I can get to work .24.18, .26.1 and .26.2.
.24.19/20/21 will always give errors on install and remove.

Synaptic doesnt allow me to force an older version. I set it, and it just resets to the current one.

My Intel ABGN 4965 wont start with any kernel.
On .24.18 I was able to turn off the kill switch doing an echo on it, but that doesnt work with newer kernels.
