# depmod -ae
WARNING: -e needs -E or -F

Interestingly, the -E option is not listed in the man pages

So I just did:

# depmod -a

I also removed and reinstalled the kernel, rebooted, same problem - does
not work

I noticed there is something weird from the dmesg, particularly with:

rt2870sta: version magic ' SMP mod_unload 686
' should be ' SMP mod_unload 686 '

So it appears that I need a new .ko module and perhaps RPMFusion does not
have it yet and perhaps because they have not caught up to the new kernel...

I wonder if a akmod is available though.

And then, I also noticed from dmesg:
HDA Intel 0000:00:1b.0: irq 26 for MSI/MSI-X
name_count maxed, losing inode data: dev=00:07, inode=12948
name_count maxed, losing inode data: dev=00:07, inode=12948
name_count maxed, losing inode data: dev=00:07, inode=12948
name_count maxed, losing inode data: dev=00:07, inode=12940
<about 100 more of these...>
EXT4-fs (sdb7): mounted filesystem with ordered data mode
SELinux: initialized (dev sdb7, type ext4), uses xattr

Perhaps the above is unrelated to this post - something to do with hard
drive itself
(... and it is brand-new)

So, all in all, rt2870 module does not load.
