starting cpu interrupts balacing daemon [OK] then it takes forever go from line to line

ex after that line, [ 44,148085] ieee80211 phy0:wl_ops_bss_info_change:gos enabled:true(inplemented) [ 44.149096] ieee80211 phy0: brcmsmac:wl-ops_bss_info_changed:associated

and it will go on like this, taking literately forever from line to line. Gradually the number in the square brackets increases with the line. Help, what exactly does this mean? I can't even get to the log on menu. This all happened after I try to restart upon installing the ATI drive for Linux. Now it's like this... What is up exactly?

So, I don't know what exactly the problem is, but all of the lines it is outputting slowly have to do with your wireless adapter (which I think is a broadcom). You could try disabling your wireless, but I'm not sure if that will work. – BretD Feb 24 '12 at 3:53

Since you say all this started happening after you installing the ati driver for linux you could try to revert the graphic driver changes with the steps I provided in another answer: After uninstalling ati fglrx drivers ubuntu 11.10 wont boot
