I tried apt-get dist-upgrade, which produced tons of screen content, as well
as removing the timidity package. Unfortunately the boot still hangs.
I'm not sure (nor have I ever been) how to interpret the contents of dmesg.
The last 20 lines of the file are here for anyone kind enough to help me
understand what they mean. I can provide the whole file if that's useful.
