Thumbs down bootup errors


Ok here goes,
these are some errors i am getting when my redhat 7.2 computer boots up with the kernel i compiled v2.4.19

I was wondering if someone would mind expleining what they mean and how to fix them? i think they might have something to do with why one of my cdroms only works with my new kernel?

these are the errors:
the errors are the bold bits.

checking filesystems:
/boot: clean
/music: clean
[B]mounting local fs: mount: fs type devpts not supported by kernel[/B
FAILED

Enabling swap space OK
/bin/cat: /proc/modules: nosuch file or directory
/bin/cat: /proc/ksyms: no such file or directory

Init: entering runlevel 5

Initiating Random Number Generator OK
mounting othe filesystems mount: fs devpts not supported by kernel
FAILED

*this extract may not be entirely exact.

When i built my kernel i did:
make mrproper
make xconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage

and then copied the bzImage to /boot

nothing else
should i have done something else? this is all i could work out that i had to do.

Any help again much appreciated!

This isn't a serious error, you simply ommited support for devpts in your kernel configuration.

I was just looking through my /var/log/messages file and noticed this appeared too.

Modprobe: modprobe: Cant locate module block-major-2

what is that module? and what does that mean??
