/var/log/syslog? Or are those not the messages you are looking for?

That is empty for me (and apparently non-existent for the OP). Ubuntu 12.04.

Would have been nice if they mentioned this in the release notes:

That was the first thing I thought of as well, but I don't think that
natty (11.04) would use a Kernel 2.6.28 from 2009. Actually it should be
2.6.38-something. Therefore I suppose there is another problem.

Or perhaps /var/log/messages



There isn't one there by default. You have to go through some gyrations
to have it running again. It can work, as I have mine working again.
Just google for the solution, it's posted all over the place. Ric

Ah. Good catch - that is a Jaunty 9.04 (EOL) kernel.
