I've been looking for an answer to this question for a few weeks, and so finaly I think i can resort to that last shot and beg for help.
During the boot process of my Sarge (Debian) just before the daemons are begining to load, the color of the text of the system console goes from bright white to gray. This started happening since I upgraded to 2.6. I am currently on 2.6.6. I will prepare a detailed report on my system configuration and a print out of my boot messages very soon but for now I am kind of hoping that it will turn out to be something trivial. Thanks in advance
