After upgrading to gnome 2.26, I've noticed multiple things have stopped working. My laptop is no longer able to suspend or hibernate. The SD Reader has stopped working. The video drivers have a tendency to randomly crash. While I have recently updated my kernel, the problems started and were present prior to the kernel upgrade, first being noticed after the gnome upgrade.

Have you downgraded your kernel to see if it fixes the problem?
My emerge --info
Have you run revdep-rebuild lately? It's in gentoolkit and it's worth a shot if things don't work well.

All these features worked flawlessly with the previous (2.6.30-r4) kernel. I even got help from someone who knows what they are doing far more than myself with that one. It worked. No problems surfaced until i upgraded to gnome 2.26. The upgrade of gnome was a week or two ago, the upgrade of the kernel was only a day or two ago, and it seems to be working fine other than the problems that had surfaced prior to the kernel upgrade. Would you like me to try an older kernel, like 2.6.29? Since I'm on ext4, I am somewhat hesitant to use a kernel version that still has the data-loss bug that was patched in 2.6.30
