  regardless of which kernel i now boot, i'm screwed.  i get the above
error message for the *original* kernel, while booting under the new
kernel gives me gdm/prefdm errors so i don't have an X session
anymore.

  at this point, i think it's time to just wait for the next release
candidate and see if things improve.
