/sbin/depmod -a Aborted

So, I was trying to install v4l-dvb. I went to run make install as root and it died on /sbin/depmod -a

So, I tried running it myself and it sat for a while then came back with "Aborted". I ran it with the -v option and it spat out a bunch of stuff that didn't mean anything to me. I'm hoping someone here can help.

These are the last few lines of output:
/lib/modules/ needs "i2c_del_driver": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "i2c_detach_client": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "i2c_attach_client": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "i2c_master_send": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "i2c_use_client": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "lirc_register_plugin": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_bind_memory": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_enable": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_backend_acquire": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_bridges": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "i2c_del_adapter": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_free_memory": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_allocate_memory": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_unbind_memory": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "i2c_add_adapter": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_copy_info": /lib/modules/
/lib/modules/ needs "agp_backend_release": /lib/modules/

Are my nvidia drivers busted? Seems odd since X11 is coming up just fine with the nvidia splash screen and all that. Any ideas are welcome. Thanks.

So you compiled v4l-dvb form source? If all went well then you need to do make install as root or use sudo.

So, I've since totally reinstalled linux (twice). It was the v4l-dvb that was messing things up. When I ran the make install as root it does something that prevents depmod -a from running successfully. After doing make rminstall I could depmod again, but it also removed some stuff that left my system messed up as well.

I'm giving up on v4l-dvb for now. Thanks for the help though.
