[all variants] Update-initramfs hangs

view story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Ive reinstalled three times in the past two weeks and each time I eventually run into this same problem. When installing something (this time the nvidia driver) that requires update-initramfs to be run, it stalls and hangs. Code: $ sudo update-initramfs -u update-initramfs: Generating /boot/initrd.img-3.5.0-17-generic I let it sit like this for near an hour once and it did nothing. This is the tail end of my dpkg log: Code: 2012-11-11 17:59:57 trigproc initramfs-tools:all 0.103ubuntu0.2 <none> 2012-11-11 17:59:57 status half-configured initramfs-tools:all 0.103ubuntu0.2 (Hardware)
