Re: "FATAL: [...] modules.dep not found" messages at boot time

I've recently built linux kernels 2.6.15 and 2.6.16 using make-kpkg,
and in both instances, although everything works fine, I am greeted
with a stream of error messages at boot time stating that the
modules.dep file is not found.

When building 2.6.16, towards the end of the make-kpkg command I
noticed the following message:

  depmod -q -FSystem.map -b /usr/src/linux-source-2.6.16/debian/linux-image-2.6.16 2.6.16;
  /bin/sh: depmod: command not found

1) Re-install depmod. Perhaps your depmod binary got corrupted or deleted.

2) Make sure you're booting with the kernel you think you're booting with. Perhaps you're booting with rather than 2.6.16.
