is that a dummy device? check your kernel config for dummy devices then recompile and reinstall.

edit: you'll have to exclude them from the config of course but make sure no other device is dependent to it though i doubt that there are.

Place a # in front of /sbin/modprobe dummy in the file /etc/rc.d/rc.modules

Then reboot, or faster: run
/sbin/modprobe -r dummy
