modprobe: command not found


I'm trying to get my Creative NX Pro Webcam working. I am having some problems with modprobe (and a few others). What did I screw up this time? Is there a fix?

Code:
[root@localhost user]# modprobe videodev
bash: modprobe: command not found
Code:
[root@localhost user]# lsmod videodev
bash: lsmod: command not found
Thanks
Sam

Try typing

Code:
su -
then re-enter your commands.

Or put the full path to them:

/sbin/<command>
/usr/sbin/<command>

Wherever the command resides. And if you are using su, look into using sudo instead, more secure as you don't have to use root's password directly.

Try this way

Code:
[root@localhost user]# sbin/modprobe videodev
Code:
[root@localhost user]# sbin/lsmod videodev
As you can see add "sbin"
