Can't locate module char-major-4

I'm installing 5.0 on a new machine. I've got these messages in

Feb 10 16:10:10 maske modprobe: modprobe: Can't locate module char-major-4
Feb 10 16:10:50 maske last message repeated 4 times
Feb 10 16:11:50 maske init: Id "1" respawning too fast: disabled for 5

(I've commented out entries 2-6 in /etc/inittab; I had the last message 6
times, of course).

I've added "alias char-major-4 serial" in /etc/modules.conf, to no avail.
I've checked the kernel configuration, but I can't see what's wrong in

Also, it seems I've lost the terminal (I'm usually using ssh).

Any clues?
