strange modprobe annoyance...


hi all,

recently upgraded to 2.6.2 kernel. managed to get things working *fairly* well. Only problem is a few things i need to clean up in my boot logs, and in general, so hopefully someone can help out.

okay, first things first. my logs are spammy with this mess:

Feb 19 08:33:07 mother modprobe: FATAL: Module char_major_5_2 not found.
Feb 19 08:33:07 mother modprobe: FATAL: Module char_major_5 not found.

these messages are spamming up my logs, and i cant seem to track down the culprit.
I checked my modprobe.conf file, and found that char-major-4 and char-major-5 alias to serial:

alias char-major-4 serial
alias char-major-5 serial

So i dont really have any serial devices, and thought i would try commenting these lines out of the modprobe.conf file. no luck, still have the problem.
the thing is, that i notice these messages get spammed into my logs every time i open a new terminal.
could someone point me in a general (or specific would be even better) direction to track down what this is, and why its happening?
TIA
pld

hrm. thanks for the suggestion. i tried it, but i still receive:

Feb 19 10:18:03 mother modprobe: FATAL: Module char_major_5_2 not found.
Feb 19 10:18:03 mother modprobe: FATAL: Module off not found.

whenever a new terminal opens up. any other thoughts? perhaps if i could track down the place where this module is being called to load?
