Yes, but doesn't help with insmod lp; modprobe -a lp is now fine,
however. I would like a clear pointer in the insmod manpage to modprobe
which recommends modprobe -a over insmod. I have other troubles with
modutils 2.1.121 I need to investigate, for example, rmmod -a does not
remove a single module AND does not report error, I have more than one
unused module. Strange.
