Kernel 2.6.18-4 issues

My system has been quite stable for the past year and half. I've recently upgraded the kernel from 2.6.12 to 2.6.18-4-k7. I'm running an AMD 64 Athlon 3200+ (yes with a 32-bit kernel). I attempted to install the modules for nVidia, IVTV, and LIRC. LIRC didn't go so well, so I tried to back it out...but I'm still seeing messages for it during boot time.

But first things first...here's the first error message I see during boot:

kobject_add failed for audio with -EEXIST, don't try to register things with the same name in the same directory.
 [<c01b90ce>] kobject_add+0x146/0x16c
 [<c0213d8a>] class_device_add+0x9d/0x3b2
 [<c01b8e5d>] kobject_get+0xf/0x13
 [<c0214128>] class_device_create+0x79/0x99
 [<f888b0ac>] oss_init+0xac/0x12a [sound]
 [<c0135c67>] sys_init_module+0x1732/0x18b5
 [<c0102c57>] syscall_call+0x7/0xb

Here's a link to my entire dmesg output:


I'm new to kernel upgrades so any ideas explaining the error messages is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the help,
