I have finally managed to get my new 2.6.6 kernel working properly (after upgrading from 2.4.22) and have a couple of questions:
1. The modules for my network and sound cards are not loaded automatically anymore.
a) why were they loaded in 2.4.22 but not 2.6.6?
b) what is the correct way of telling it to load modules on boot?
2. A new network device has appeared in 'ifconfig -a':
sit0 Link encap:UNSPEC HWaddr 00-00-00-00-31-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00-00
NOARP MTU:1480 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
TX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
RX bytes:0 (0.0 b) TX bytes:0 (0.0 b)
what on earth is it?
what is going on with that hwaddr?
For modules edit /etc/rc.d/rc.modules and uncomment line "/sbin/modprobe/name_modules" or add this line if there isn't; in kernel 2.6.x some module it has an other name, you must control.
For network device I don't know what has happened
