porblems update-modules


Hi, I've a DebianSlug installed on an NSLU2 branded by Linksys, a NAS you can attach an HD usb.
I've installed that distro that is an unstable for ARM processor.
Till now no problems, but today , while I was installing and removing new sofware update-modules give me some errors.
I can tell you in advance this kernel have not all modules installed,becasue its portability, and for example the module "tun" you must install apart trought packages .deb if you want to use openvpn...
But I tink this issue is not beacuse of modules, bacuse these software , IMHO, don't depends on modules....

Here a view of my apt-get install and remove
