I reinstalled and now I dont have modprobe


I reinstalled Fedora core2 and when going to install my bttv capture card driver I typed modprobe but it says "bash: modprobe: command not found" Can someone tell me how i can reinstall this? I have looked for a tar or rpm with it but cant seem to find it online.

Thanks for the help ahead of time.

i used locate modprobe and this is what it returned, but i went to the etc/ and sbin/ directory and typed modprobe and it still says "bash: modprobe: command not found"

Also just to be sure i downloaed and installed modutils 2.4.26 from ftp://ftp.univie.ac.at/systems/linux...26-16.i386.rpm and it said it was already installed but still, when i run modprobe i get the bash cant be found messege.

Think you will find that you have to be root to use modprobe

As root

Code:
# /sbin/modprobe
Should do the trick
