RE: moving to bo/modutils


I had the same problem.  I recompiled the kernel without module support,
and installed the modutils without a problem.

If you comment out the module entries in the /etc/modules file the boot
errors will stop.  Just hope you don't need any of them.

I haven't recompiled module support back in since I put everything I need
in the kernel, but I assume that now that the modutils is installed I
could and all would be fine.

If your X colors look like crap you might have the wrong server or maybe a
bad config.  I had to make many mod's manually to the XF86Config file to
get my X looking good.  I'm 99% sure that the kernel has nothing to do
with the appearence of X.

Have a good one.
