modprode problem after update kernel


I'm using red hat linux 7.3,
after i update kernel to 2.4.22, the system can boot successfully.
But there is some problem in the message, like:

modprode: modprode: Can't locate module char-major-10-134
modprode: modprode: Can't locate module sound-slot-0
modprode: modprode: Can't locate module sound-service-0-0

Is that normal or what? Can someone tell me?
Thanks.

i assume the system does finish booting? if so do you have sound? if so then this is nothing to worry about and can be safely ignored, what this is is modules.autoload looking for modules that you probably didnt compile in your new kernel especially if you simply built in sound instead of making it as modules

its under sound
what redhat does is make almost all sound options as modules, you dont need to do that since you know what your soundcard is, so you can either compile it in or compile it as modules compiling your sound options as modules will fix the warning but so will removing the entries in your module autoload file look at the slackware book for this www.slackware.com/book unless your planning on changing your sound card often you might as well just compile it directly into the kernel for conveniences sake

i dont think so, what you can do if you really want to get rid of that and dont want to just change the autoloaded modules is get a copy of the old redhat kernel config i think redhat keeps a spare copy in /boot and place it in the new kernel source directory it should be named .config then you can run make oldconfig but truly it doesnt hurt anything to leave it as is it probably adds a quarter of a second total to your boot time

the new kernel will be different, there are driver updates, usb updates, timer updates, power management updates, scheduler updates, all sorts of things, newer kernel have loads of bugfixes with each release and interactivity/performance/support for devices gets better with new kernels (most of the time) on occasion something breaks but it is usually quickly fixed so its usually a good idea to become familiar with kernels and compiling them and updating them then use recent releases for more information on kernels in general try
