I was fixing a problem with my root login and Orbit/Gnome. One of the things
that was recommended was to do
apt-get upgrade && apt-get update
Somehow in the process of doing that, there were some changes to the kernel.
Now when I try to boot, I get the message "... update kernel or disable
CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPECATED...". I went into /boot and edited
config_2.6.26_2-amd64 and changed the "y" to "n" for both
CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED and CONFIG_SYSFS_DEPRECATED_V2, but the error
message remains. I can boot into single user mode and access the system, but
I can't do a complete system boot. It hangs on the CPUFreq part. I would
like to get my laptop back without completely rebuilding the OS.
I've been booting up with that error message for some time now (also
on an amd64 system), with no observable problems. (Eventually, I'll
move from 2.6.26 to 2.6.30, and I assume the error will go away.)
Unfortunately in my case, the system hangs and won't finish the boot process.
