Depends on what you are trying to do.

You can always try "insmod".

And your topic wasn't precise - It isn't "modprobe not found", but "modules.dep" not found.

If you are adding an external driver to the system, after installing (and I would have expected the procedure to do this) the "depmod" utility is run to recreate the modules.dep file.
