Could  you do 'depmod -a' on a newly installed system?

Could you please determine exactly which version you are using?  I
expect it's 2.2.20.  'uname -a' and 'ls /lib/modules' would help as

We need exact output of that failure.  It might suffice to send to
this bug the /var/log/installer.log that was created during
installation, after you've rebooted into your system.

Hmm.  I can't even test this, so, as I said, I need exact data.

Thanks a lot.
