Hi David,

I'm not sure, as I haven't loaded my lucid installation in ages, but I think I
saw -lowlatency mentioned having been updated over the weekend. Could that be
the reason? Do you have older kernels available that you could boot into?

It's of course possible that the filesystem has suffered damages for whatever
reason, can you boot into single-user mode and run fsck on it?

I would check previous kernels first, though, if there are any.

Best regards,
