Yesterday I finally found a solution (but not *the* solution) to them in
an ubuntu forum:
The solution given is to unpack the initrd.img and put modules.dep in it
and repack it again, and behold, the messages go away.
Thats a crazy "solution".
The real solution us to run "depmod -a"
No that's not it. Read the ubuntu post, that has all the details. The
problem is not the absence of modules.dep in the *root* file system. The
problem is its absence before the init of initrd.img runs, at that point
there is no root file system yet.
