When I upgraded all packages on my arch laptop today, kernel26- was upgraded, as was rt2x00-cvs, which I had previously downloaded manually from unstable and built and installed, but is now a part of core/support. After a reboot, a `modprobe rt2500pci` would claim to not be able to find the module, even though I could see it was there in /lib/modules/...2.6.23.../...

Anyway, after I ran `depmod` modprobe was able to find and load rt2500pci from rt2x00-cvs. Perhaps that depmod should be added to a post-install somewhere.
This task depends upon

It should be there. It seems that rt2x00 post-install tries to run depmod for 2.6.22, which is a mistake in the PKGBUILD. As I cannot update rt2x00 for 2.6.23 to a newer version and it will be included in 2.6.24 anyway, fixing this problem seems like a waste of time though.
