Running into issues with moddep/depmod
I found the following errors in my logs after performing an update:
could not open moddep file '/lib/modules/4.15.8-x86_64 linode103/modules.dep.bin
Running depmod also produces the following error:
depmod: WARNING: could not open /lib/modules/4.15.8-x86_64 linode103/modules.order: No such file or directory
Is there a missing module in Linode's Debian repo?
These errors indicate your kernel is not compatible with the modules you're trying to run. If Linode's kernels do not contain the modules you need then you'll need to run your Linode on a distribution supplied kernel.
The following guide covers how to accomplish that: Distribution Supplied Kernels
i have the same issues, and it seems to be preventing my iptables-restore and ufw from starting properly on reboot….at least, that's what led me to realizing i have this issue. note that i can't mkdir the directory as caker recommends, because it already exists, and i can't "depmod -a" because I get the errors like dsmith posts.
