Re: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than modules.dep ???

I remember I had a similar problem, but I don't think it was serious.

I think it was caused by the system clock being converted from GMT to local
time after modprobe checks the timestamps on those files.  I fixed my
problem by touching /etc/module.conf back a few hours.  I think your problem
will dissapear in a few hours.
