    Need help with modprobe: Can't open dependencies file


    modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2174.nptl/modules.dep

    In the messages log I have many instances of this and can not seen to find out how to correct it. running fedora.

    In the /lib/modules here is what is there:
    drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 4096 Jul 6 14:38 2.4.22-1.2197.nptl

    looks like a newer version of what the machine is looking for.

    Anyone have a fix for this?

    Thanks
    Ray

    For some reason your system is trying to install modules form a kernel different than the one you have installed.
    What kernel version are you using? Could you post the results of a 'uname - a' for me? Thanks.
