boot errors .... ?


hi people,

slackware does boot but i get some errors during boot again


1)
SCSI subsystem driver Revision 1.0:
kmod: failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k scsi_***adapter errno = 2
(i get that line 3 times)

2)
agpgart: Maximum main memory to use for agp memory 379M
agpgart: unsupported Via chipset (device id: 3205), you might want to try agp_try_unsupported=1.
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: init_module: no such device
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters including invalid IO or IRQ parameters
/lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/char/agp/agpgart.o.gz failed

as a noob to these things i don't know what to do with these errors. any ideas how to solve these or any tips where i can get started are welcome.


thanks in advance

for the 1) :in your lilo config, is there a line like :
append="ide-scsi"
?

Try modprobe via_agp for the 2) and see the output, if module not found you may have to recompile your kernel (not so difficult, just for add the via agp feature)

for 1) no i don't have such a line in lilo.conf

2) output is: can't locate module via_agp

i have no idea how to recompile the kernel though with that module.



thanks in advance

***EDIT***

how can i found out all the modules etc compiled with my current kernel? so i don't miss anything out when i recompile?

for the scsi, do i also have to disable that during a kernel compile, or can i manage that without playing with the kernel?

for a 2.4.26 kernel, I would do :
- locate the original config, I think /boot/config-2.4.26 or very similar
- cd /usr/src/linux
- make mrproper
- cp /boot/config-2.4.26 .config
- make menuconfig
from here go to
devices drivers > character devices and enable VIA chipset support (a few line below agpart)
-you can eventually set your processor in Processor Type menu and a little other features
but don't add too much and click help button in doubt
- make dep
- make bzImage
- make modules
- make modules_install
from here, the compile stuff is done now it is the install
- mv /boot/System.map /boot/System.map.oldy
- cp System.map /boot/
- mv /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.oldy
- cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz
look at your lilo config to make sure kernel name is vmlinuz, if not edit config and run /sbin/lilo

reboot and see if it is better
