The original question I had was concerning the GTK+ and Gllib RPMs (which were
actually redhat). After I installed them, my sound quit working in KDE (this
is on a SuSE 6.4 system). I thought that them being non SuSE RPMs they somehow
broke my sound.
Now, the kernel modules are not automatically loaded from modules.conf and when
I try to insert them manually, they show when I use lsmod, but they still wont
