    Subject2.6.1: modprobe behaves strange

    I'm using the x86_64 architecture branch and have simply copied the
    kernel into my configuration of a 2.4.21 kernel.

    I have the following lines in /etc/modules.conf:

    alias eth0 r8169

    alias snd-card-0 snd-via82xx

    With the 2.4.21 kernel everything worked fine, with the 2.6.1 kernel I
    get the following behavior:

    modprobe eth0
    (no error, but r8169 not loaded)

    modprobe r8169
    (module r8169 is loaded and works)

    modprobe snd-card-0
    (FATAL: Modul snd_card_0 not found)

    modprobe snd-via82xx
    (module snd-via82xx is loaded and works)

    I'm not really a kernel expert and so I have to ask:
    Am I right, that this could be a problem of the kernel?
    Is this the wildcard problem that was fixed in mm1?
    Should I try mm1 or where should I begin to search for the problem?
