I have compiled kernels 2.6.8 debian and 18.104.22.168 regular and, with both, when I boot up I get errors similar to this person.
FATAL: Module xir not found.
FATAL: Module hid not found.
FATAL: Module keybdev not found. etc etc.
I have compiled the kernel as per this page.
After the errors, it boots up and I can ssh in, but they keyboard doesnt work.
I know I could compile these bits into the kernel but I'd like to find out what i have done wrong in case it effects anything else.
