Does modprobe actually work for anyone?

I get the same weird error on both 1.0.4 and 1.0.5alpha2

I type:
modprobe moduleName

and it says:
Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.29/modules.dep

..and no info.

ok, thx. I actually just got the module to compile/install and now modprobe just gives me nothing (meaning it's loaded I guess).

Man I'm having a great time. I'm doing some compiling with the new alpha 2, it's even better than I had hoped.

I'm just praying Barry adds MPPE to the kernel.

PLEASE BARRY!

Try this line in /etc/rc.d/rc.local:

Code:
touch /lib/modules/2.4.27/modules.dep


That should update the modify date.
Let me know if it works and I'll put it in permanently.


Explained a bit more here
