syslog errer message and interrupt problem


hi there!
recently i discovered the following at the end of my syslog:

Jan 29 15:31:21 darkstar modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-10-134
Jan 29 15:31:22 darkstar kernel: nvidia: loading NVIDIA NVdriver Kernel Module 1.0-2880 Tue Mar 26

Jan 29 16:42:37 darkstar modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp-compress-21
Jan 29 16:42:37 darkstar modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp-compress-21
Jan 29 16:42:37 darkstar pppd[356]: Cannot determine ethernet address for proxy ARP
Jan 29 17:14:13 darkstar modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp0
Jan 29 17:14:16 darkstar modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp-compress-21
Jan 29 17:14:16 darkstar modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module ppp-compress-21
Jan 29 17:14:17 darkstar pppd[451]: Cannot determine ethernet address for proxy ARP

i don`t know which process tries to load these modules. i looked through all the rc.* files and
i couldn`t find anything. i don`t know if this is serious as sound and ppp are working (both
compiled into the kernel not as modules!). could it be a problem with modules.devfs?
i found a line like this

alias /dev/sound sound-slot-0

in it. i don`t what devfs really is. do i need it or can i switch it off?

with the spurious interrupt i looked into /proc/interrupts and found:

CPU0
0: 839914 XT-PIC timer
1: 23672 XT-PIC keyboard
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
5: 0 XT-PIC usb-uhci, usb-uhci
10: 70921 XT-PIC es1371
11: 716548 XT-PIC nvidia
12: 130172 XT-PIC PS/2 Mouse
14: 11214 XT-PIC ide0
15: 13 XT-PIC ide1
NMI: 0
LOC: 839892
ERR: 206
MIS: 0

seems like that there is a conflict.
as long as my system is running i don`t know how serious these problems are. but if anyone knows how
i can stop these messages i would feel better about it :-)

devfs is a new filesystem-like interface that's supposed to, eventually, replace /dev. I wouldn't mess with it. If you've compiled support for certain services like sound and ppp, you could probably get rid of these messages by commenting out the appropriate lines in modules.conf. The message is telling you that it cannot find the module (sound's not modular, right?). I'm betting that if you comment out those lines, sound still works. And the error messages are gone.

One of the gripes I have about modules.conf is that it always seems to have lines in there that are for things you don't want or need or they're not there and you have to go hunting around for the right syntax to get the darned lines in there. :-)

i commented everything in modules.conf out. that indeed is the problem.

username. your saying something about the kde arts server. i also had a problem with that some tome ago. there were error messages when i logged out. id don`t see these error messages anymore because now i use graphical log out. but i bet they are still there. i`m using a soundblaster pci 64 soundcard.

maybe i will update to slack 9.0 in some time. let's hope these things will dissapear with that step :-).

I used to have frequent problems w/ artsd back in RH7.1, KDE, and the same soundcard. I eventually started running esd (loading at boot time) and never had any further problems. That was quite a while ago, though, and I'd be surprised if that would still be happening.

Have any samples of the error messages?
