comment Ubuntu doesn't boot when selecting linux 3.0
I got ubuntu 11.10 with linux kernel 3.0 working. If you have an nvidia graphics card, try this. Boot into 2.6.38, and disable nouveau kernel by adding the line "blacklist nouveau" in the file /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf. Install nvidia driver by : sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-current. Now, do an update-initramfs -u -v -k 3.0.0-12-generic in order to update the ramdisk for kernel 3.0, and also do update-grub (just in case). Now, if you try to boot into Kernel 3.0, it will work. (Worked for me...)
