   Linux FAQ > 10. Frequently Encountered Error Messages
Question:  10.1. Modprobe Can't Locate Module, XXX, and Similar Messages.
Answer:

These types of messages mostly occur at boot time or shutdown. If modprobe, insmod, or rmmod complain about not being able to find a module, add the following to the /etc/modules.conf or /etc/modutils/aliases file, whichever is present on your system.

   $ alias <module-name> off


And use the name of the module that appears in the error message.

[J.H.M. Dassen]
