I should have been clearer. 2.6.15 may not be old from a Gnewsense perspective --that may be the latest for Gnewsense.
Other perspectives: the last of 2.6.15s on was from March 2006.
Debian 4.0 ships with 2.6.18.
Current stable at is
You will have to ask the Gnewsense folks about their kernel/release plan if you want to stay in their release cycle. 
On the other hand you could always go to and build your own as well. You, of course, would be responsible for removing anything that offended you.

Dear friends,

I just noticed that the problem only occurs with I log in as user "andrei" - other user accounts do not have he same problem.  I further noticed that my USB flash memory peripherals are not mounting automatically anymore.  I can still do it manually, but this GNOME convenience is now lost.

What do I need to reset/edit/correct  in my account config to have HAL initialized?

Should I reintall HAL somehow?

Also - my automatic updates are all completed, why does Rich say that 2.6.15.x is old?  Where and how should I get a newer kernel?

Thanks for any help,

IIRC we patch hal, but it may only be the GUI bit.
you would have to check the SVN repo for more details.
