Default Bug#631997: linux-image-2.6.39-2-486: black screen after grub menu

Package: linux-2.6
Version: 2.6.39-2
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable

My computer never boots with 2.6.39-2-486 or 2.6.38. Currently I am running a
custom built 2.6.30 kernel. When I boot with 2.6.39 or 2.6.38 the screen goes
black after I select the kernel in grub. Nothing ever comes up. cntl-alt-f1
does nothing. This happens whether I have modeset=1 or 0. I have a radeon
graphics card.

I just recovered from being dead in the water after upgrading udev because my
kernel was too old. Now, it seems I can't upgrade my kernel. I have an up to
date wheezy box as of a couple of weeks ago. I have had to back down the udev
so that everything is not broke.

Please could yo test some of the earlier versions from
<http://snapshot.debian.org/package/linux-2.6/> to find which was the
last working version?

What if you select the 'recovery mode' menu item? Do you see any
messages from the kernel?

I will try the earlier versions when I get a chance.* It may not be very soon since that computer is at my church and I will be on vacation for a week.* By the way, since I will be using snapshot, is there a config file for APT that I can put something to handle the snapshots being expired?* See bug 595801.* It is a pain when going to snapshot in synaptic and getting the release file expired message.* I drop out to the command line and do apt-get -o 'Acquire::Check-Valid-Until=false' update from the command line to get around it.



recovery mode does not work either.* Still an endless black screen after grub with no messages from the kernel.

It is an AMD Athlon 850 MHZ. It is maxed out at a whopping 256 MB ram.
It is an old HP computer which has very oddball hardware that I am
trying to keep crippling along because the church doesn't have the money
to buy a better one. The reason I am running the old custom kernel is
because it has an oddball conexant riptide sound card that I have to
special handle in the kernel build(3rd party driver and firmware) in
order to make it work and it is a pain.
