errors while booting a custom compiled kernel can't figure out wich module?

I compiled kernel version but it seams I have made a mistake.
after I boot my computer running slackware 10.2 with my newly compiled kernel,
I get the following erros yet the system boots.


socket(): Address family not supported by protocal.
however I get the login prompt after these messages and I can safely login.
I ran things like mp3 player etc.
but I did not find problem so far. however to prevent problems in future, I will like to know which modules I have probably missed?
I tried to figure it out but could not.
Please help.

Must be the OSS emulation modules, coincidentally called snd_pcm_oss and snd_mixer_oss. They can be found in menuconfig at "Device Drivers" -> Sound -> ALSA, and they're called "OSS Mixer API" and under this "OSS PCM (digital audio) API".
