 From the kernel Documentation / :
Enhanced Real Time Clock Support
   If you say Y here and create a character special file /dev/rtc with
   major number 10 and minor number 135 using mknod ("man mknod"), you
   will get access to the real time clock (or hardware clock) built
   into your computer.

It means your kernel lacks the "real time clock" support.
Check your kernel config and see if this option is activated in the 
"character devices" section.
If it's not you should compile a new kernel with this option.I once 
compiled this as a module, to notice that the module "rtc" was always 
loaded. So now it's just compiled-in.
If it is activated in your kernel, then you probably miss the "/dev/rtc" 
file => "cd /dev ; mknod c rtc 10 135"
If you have this /dev/rtc file, try adding "alias char-major-10-135 off" 
in your /etc/modules.conf config file.

 From the second line, you seem to have a "$PATH" problem.
Type a "type -path modprobe" at the Bash prompt and note the full path 
for modprobe (usually /sbin/modprobe), then check this directory is 
searched in the PATH for your script.
