Missing modules 2.6.6 install


I have just performed upgrade to kernel 2.6.6, however, I have a few problems I cannot figure out for myself...

When the kernel boots, it complains of missing modules ie:

FATAL: Module ide_scsi missing
FATAL: Module agpgart missing
FATAL: Module snd_pcm_oss missing
FATAL: Module snd_mixer_oss missing

I have gone back into my kernel configuration, and have added as modules the missing ones I can locate (cannot find where agpgart is?, and I have ide_scsi already selected?)

But.. when I re-booted with snd_pcm_oss & snd_pcm_mixer modules added, it alerted during boot that these are already in kernel??

Can anyone help, or point me in the direction of a tutorial on 2.6 module handling? All my books are for 2.4

Apart from that, all seems to be running well (havn't yet tried playing DVD or burning CD yet though)

Thank you

I can answer part of the question

Well, the 2.6.6 kernel has a built in ide-scsi module so you need to go in to lilo and remove the append line that states hdc=ide-scsi

As far as the rest of your question is concerned, I think that after changing your configuration you recompiled only modules ("make modules") and not kernel itself ("make bzImage"). Then you probably have the same parts compiled twice : first into the kernel, second as modules. Check it.

Don't worry, this is "false errors". Those modules don't exist anymore, but remains in startup scripts. Try to find the lines which try to load'em in /etc/rc.d directory.
