I find that a lot of drivers only complain in the logs, and not on
the command line. Considering that most drivers are loaded at
startup, this makes sense in that it can be hard to see the messages
as they go scrolling by. (If the messages are not hidden by the
pretty boot screen...) But there are some drivers that happily load
even if there is no hardware for them to tie to...
