"FATAL: Error" is just modprobe telling you the module refused to load.

> Script from http://www.kernelplanet.org/ search for bug-generator-o-matic

I looked at Dave's script; its purpose is to find modules that *oops* when
they are loaded (presumably, without the actual H/W present).  So, I don't
think the errors you listed are actually problems at all (unless you happen
to *have* any of that H/W).

It's a nice little script though.  Thanks for pointing that out.

Regards,
