I have noticed that almost 30% of the times, ubuntu gets stuck at the "purple" screen before the actual Ubuntu symbol comes when the OS loads.
Why is this and how can I fix it?
PS: I have this peculiar entry in boot menu. 1st its "Ubuntu" and then when I choose the other option it takes me to the 3.2's generic and safe kernel version. Interestingly I am using the 3.5.0-17 generic version of the kernel. (is this the latest for ubuntu?)
