    SubjectBoot hangs on IBM T60
    Hi, all

    It happens very rarely that the system hangs while

    The last message on console is :

    Activating device mapper..

    I dont' get any oops and the system works without any
    problem if it boots. :)

    uname -a gives #1 SMP Fri Jun 22 12:17:53 UTC
    2007 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

    Let me know if you need more information, with the
    steps to generate that info. :)

    I am pasting a few lines which fall above and below
    the mapper activation as shown by dmesg for a
    successful boot.
