I have ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell Inspiron
I did an upgrade using following commands
apt-get update apt-get upgrade apt-get dist-upgrade
Now on restarting the system, the latest kernel version does not boot up, leaving me with blinking caps light. It seems like system just hangs up.
Though previous kernel is still bootable (thank god !!)
What might be the problem and how can I solve it.
EDIT : Output of df and cat /etc/fstab

EDIT : Even using
sudo update-initramfs -u -k 2.6.38-11-generic sudo update-grub
Has not helped.
