I was trying compiled my own kernel, after it didn't work i downloaded latest official kernel from for my

Lubuntu 12.04 3.2.0-55-generic i386 netbook.

I installed official kernel with these commands (i386) . I can normally boot with 3.2.0-55-generic (default kernel). So is problem in some configurations or version (for v3.11.6-"saucy salamander" only?)?

My boot log:

If you're on Precise you can install the Enablement Stacks (read the page thoroughly because there are caveats).

It's likely that your newly kidnapped kernel is incompatible with the rest of the graphics stack. There's quite a bit of work between 3.2 and 3.11. By getting the rest of the stack, you stand much better chance of booting. And it's all maintained for you.

Edit: I'm not sure if the 13.10 HWE stack is released yet but even the 13.04 is a year of progress from your stock 12.04 stack.
