You can probably safely ignore the "Can't locate major character 4" messages. Many people have gotten them after upgrading. If they seem unsightly to you when you boot, then edit /etc/modules.conf. Change the line for major character 4 from "serial" to "off". Sorry, I don't know what to do about the rest of the messages.
