modprobe: FATAL: could not load /lib/modules/2.6.25.9/modules.dep: no such file or directory

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.
