Problem with modules.dep
Hi and happy new year to all,
I need a hand with my modules.dep on Slackware 10.2. The problem is it's missing or in the wrong place, and I need to either create one or get modprobe to look in the right directory. I discovered this when installing ndiswrapper and doing the "modprobe ndiswrapper" at the end:
# modprobe ndiswrapper FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.4.25-ROM/modules.dep: No such file or directory
depmod depmod: QM_MODULES: Function not implemented
/sbin/generate-modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf modprobe: Can't open dependencies file /lib/modules/2.4.25-ROM/modules.dep (No such file or directory)
Any ideas anyone?

Try depmod -a , that should rebuild the module.dep file. If you get that QM_MODULES: Function not emplimented error you might want to check that module loading is supported in that kernel.
You might want to also try updating modutils to the latest available.

depmod -a gives the same errror as depmod - how can I tell if module loading is supported in this kernel?

if only it were 2.6 you could doCode:
kernow@ulysses(~)$ zcat /proc/config.gz | grep MODULES CONFIG_MODULES=y kernow@ulysses(~)$
