[Bug 1043467] Hangs on boot with latest (4.4.70-18) kernel

(In reply to Luigi Baldoni from comment #11)
Using 4.4.71-2.ge1e822f-default, about 1 in 5 boots ends up in a console and
display-manager cannot be started. dmesg doesn't show any obvious error, nor
does Xorg.0.log.

Has this never happened before?

If it's no hang, it sounds like a typical behavior I can see with lightdm +
XFCE when the network was switched before the reboot.
Usually I need to do the followings:
- Remove ~/.Xauthority file.
- Restart lightdm via "/usr/sbin/rcxdm restart" as root.

'sudo reboot' hangs.

Does it happen always? Or is it only occasionally?

Should I file a new bug report? And in any case, how could I investigate
this further?

You need to figure out whether it's a kernel regression.

First off, you have to confirm that the problem can be reproduced reliably with
a certain procedure. Then switch the kernel between different versions, and
confirm that it happens only with the newer kernel (or vice versa).

Once when you figure it out, please open another bug report. The problem is
very likely irrelevant with this bug.
