As an update, I put a sleep 5 just after the "script" line of my /etc/init/xbmcbuntu.conf, and after a handful of warm and cold restarts.. it seems to have corrected my problem.
What is amusing is that I just put this SSD into this machine.. I bet I would have had no problems with the old laptop hard drive that was in there. heh

I shouted way to early. It worked for a couple of days and a few shutdowns, but now the problem is back again,

If memory serves at the same time I was attempting to fix this issue, I was also installing other background tasks that run at startup (mysql server, ect..) Those might have increased my boot time by 1 or 2 seconds and given it enough time to load the kernel module.
I tested your suggestion but it didn't work for me I'm afraid. I have a Zotac Zbox HD-ID11 (Atom D510) with a Compact Flash card as HDD. So my problem might still be related to timing (CF being simular to a SSD).
How does your xbmcbuntu.conf look like? I added "sleep" in the beginning of the script as suggested, see code:

yes, that is where I stuck the sleep, and so far has been working for me.

OK, thanks, then I know I did it right so far. Tested with different values, from one to 30 seconds, but no difference, so I hope that some additional solution will appear. Guess that if I re-install the unit, there is a good chance it will come back. In addition to my ID11, I also have an Zotac Zbox NANO AD10-E, which so far haven't shown these problems.

The AD10-E is not an Nvidia based platform, so it would use the AMD/ATi drivers instead.

It is funny but I got this freezing problem and the issue was due to FULL HARD-DISK! All the caching, thumbnails and user data occupied my whole hard drive. I removed some and XBMCBuntu started!

I might have had the same reason for the problem (without knowing it). I solved it by buying a new SD-card (16 gig) since my regular CF-card (4 gig) wasn't large enough with the new XMBCBuntu (XBMC Live worked fine however).

Was having similar problems, I tried some of the ideas listed earlier in this thread to solve the problem. No luck. While doing so, it threw up a few messages about there being insufficient space on the device, so I think my problems match those of pi3ch and JMelin. Now, I am a complete and utter noob when it comes to Linux/Ubuntu, so I have no idea how to clear some space on the stick so I can boot again. I know enough about it to know that it won't read in a Windows PC, so how can I clear a few thumbnails or something and allow my XBMC to boot? It was booting as recently as a day ago, but now I can't get it to boot at all. Assuming that space is the issue, how can I save space so this doesn't happen again? Or is 8GB simply not enough and I need to upgrade the stick to 16GB or even put a HDD in there (ASRock ION 330)?

I had no problems to fit earlier versions of XBMC on my 8 gig CF-card, but with the introduction of a more complete version of Ubuntu, that card is done.
I have planned to install a larger HDD (CF or SSD) in the future, but my solution was to move from XBMC Live to Openelec instead. It only requires around 200 mb, so memory is not an issue. They are still on a late beta stage with their release which includes a beta version of Eden (I hope the will release a sharp release in a near future). A positive thing which I really like is that it boots a lot quicker, since less needs to be loaded.
So in short: a larger memory or a smaller release of XBMC

So updated on my issue, the problem was my harddrive (like everyone noted) that I was using. I had no free space (just had enough to install XBMC but when it tries to update after restart it I had no space left and it freeze up. I added a second CF card to 12gb CF (2x6gb microdrives) and put the OS on one and the swap partition on the other, now I have about 2gigs free and system is running fine.
