Is that the EXACT error message ? If so, it's very curious. The path to
modprobe is /sbin/modprobe and not /sbin/modprob. This is changeable by
writing to /proc/sys/kernel/modprobe, but you've not done that, have you ?
This error occurs when the kernel decides that it needs to have a module
called binfmt-464c (I've no idea what that is - a locate for 464 on my box
produces nothing) and when it tries to exec modprobe, it dies because it
can't find it. The only light I could throw on that is if /sbin/modprob is a
typo on your behalf and in fact the error is
kmod:failed to exec /sbin/modprobe -s -k binfmt-464c, errno=8
Error number 8 is "Exec format error" - ENOEXEC and if exec can't find what
it should exec it returns ENOENT, not ENOEXEC. Bit of a mystery - does that
binfmt-464c thing ring any bells with you ?
