Missing modules in Slack 9.1

I have upgrade my Slack 9.0 to Slack 9.1

I believe that the installation missing some module package but I can't figure out how and where to check.:scratch:

The indications that some thing is missing are:
1) Unreadable messages scrolling by at high speed during boot up
2) Messages coming up (after menuconfig kernel config to solve a.m. problem)
Warning: you may need to install module-init-tools
INSTALL drivers/net/dummy.ko
if [ -r ]; then /sbin/depmod -ae -F 2.6.0-test8; fi

Some suggestion how to proceed?

1. dmesg is your friend. After booting you can type dmesg and your unreadable messages are reproduced. What I do is add a command to /etc/rc.d/rc.local like:
dmesg > /var/log/dmesg.txt

You are able to read the messages in the editor of your choise.

2. Slackware 9.1 comes with module-init tools. See pkgtool if you did install these.
