FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.35-22-generic/modules.dep:
no such file or directory

FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.24-23-generic/modules.dep:
no such file or directory

This is what I get, but Ubuntu does continue to load up and appears to be working fine. Still, it's quite unsettling and I'd like to resolve it if I can. I got this after I just reinstalled the whole thing because of an update gone wrong prior to reinstalling... I'm not quite sure WHAT happened then, but Nautilus stopped working, the desktop would refuse to load, and I figured it would be easier just to start over from scratch. :/ So is there anything I can do about this?

Thanks for your time.

This is a bug that's been around since the release candidate.

Try this (post #158 on the bug page):

Ok I've attempted a backport to Maverick, could those who have this issue please test the kernels at the URL below and report back here:
