Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

It just hangs on the loading screen. When I go into safe mode from grub and then pick resume normal boot I get the message:

[35.438644] init:lg.c:796: Assertion fail in log_clear_unflushed: log->influshed->len
[35.439650] init:caught abort, core dumped
[35.491784] Kernel panic-notsyncing:Attemped to kill init!

Nothing new was installed and the machine is about a month old.

Any ideas?
