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

this bug the /var/log/installer.log that was created during
installation, after you've rebooted into your system.

Thanks a lot.
