Actually, I do not know how I booted this kernel. The yaird initrd that
actually worked panicked out about no devfs. However, the mkinitrd one boots
up just fine, without devfs.
The "kernel modules no enabled" message I get --the config certainy has them
"yes". Some things do modprobe but alsa and a few others do not.
There is no devfs mounted, haven't had this in ages. devpts is.
My /dev has hundreds of entries, only a handfull of which are actually
associated with a real device. So if I am "static", why can't I get the rest
of the 2.6.14 modules to work?
