means the modprobe command cannot be found and you need to specify the
full path to it.  Probably:


or type

#whereis modprobe

to find it.

the missing path could be due to using

$su root

to switch user.  This gives you root privilege but not root's
environment (including default path etc).


$su - root

to pick up the environment as well, and you may find modprobe, and
other root only commands, are found without having to specify the full
path to them.
