My mistake. I assumed I was running gNewSense 2.x because the login screen on my yeeloong has the word "deltah" at the bottom right.

This doesn't make any sense. gNewSense 2.x doesn't run on the Yeeloong, only the metad version (the old gNewSense 3.0) does. Please clarify.

On attempting to boot from GRUB, the computer hangs on "Checking root filesystem" and fails to complete the check. I had to remove the battery to shut the computer off.

I have a similar problem with Linux-libre for yeeloong if it's running on AC power, but I avoid that by booting on battery power, which leads to a message like "On battery power, so skipping filesystem check".
