Some services fail when rebooting after kernel update

Dear folks

I'm running SuSE Linux 8.0 and updated the kernel package from

k_deflt-2.4.18-58

to

k_deflt-2.4.18-281

as described in yesterdays SuSE security announcement. However, two
services fail to start repeatedly when rebooting my machine.

1) SSH daemon

SSH daemon exits with status 7. I tried to discover what this error
code is supposed to tell, but I couldn't find it in the sshd
manpage. So, I haven't got any clue and would really appreciate a
hint from the list.
Here are the full logs grabbed from /var/log/boot.msg:

<notice>/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S10sshd start
Starting SSH daemon
failed
<notice>startproc: execve (/usr/sbin/sshd) [ /usr/sbin/sshd ], [
PWD=/ HOSTNAME=lux CONSOLE=/dev/console PREVLEVEL=N AUTOBOOT=YES
REDIRECT=/dev/tty1 MACHTYPE=i386-suse-linux LINES=34 SHLVL=2

OSTYPE=linux HOME=/ TERM=linux PATH=/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
RUNLEVEL=5 INIT_VERSION=sysvinit-2.82 _=/sbin/startproc
DAEMON=/usr/sbin/sshd ]
<notice>'/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S10sshd start' exits with status 7


2) Alsa sound daemon

It seems that some modules have been renamed, so that they can't be
found anymore. The logs read:

<notice>/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S12alsasound start
Starting sound driver: intel8x0modprobe: Can't locate module
snd-intel8x0
failed
<notice>'/etc/init.d/rc5.d/S12alsasound start' exits with status 0


I checked the directory

/lib/modules/2.4.18-4GB/misc

and assume that the appropriate module should be called

snd-card-intel8x0

instead of snd-intel8x0, which no longer exists. Could I just create
a link to solve this?


Thank you for your help in advance!

/Sven
