I would say that you should probably ask questions of your own distro first,
just in case they have done something different. If no one from ubuntu
knows, and they confirm that it's not an ubuntu-specific thing, that's a good
time to take it to a larger, but similar distro, or the to mailing lists of
the actual software itself.
This is pretty much what debian folk do with bugs anyway: we have our own bug
reporting system, which "wraps" the bug reporting systems of the actual
software, just in case debian has caused the problem itself.

Debian has a module-helper (or module-installer, or something like that)
package to help with this, and other, lower-level utilities that make sure
modules get installed to the right place. I'm not sure if ubuntu has those.
Please send replies to the list, not to my email address.
