Yes. In fact it did the same on my newworld, where I had actually
installed the deb using dpkg --install. I wasn't able to get
online for the last day or so, and I finally noticed it couldn't
load any modules during the boot messages -- so that was why.
Changing the /lib/modules directory name to match the uname
fixed it. AFAICT.
