    Webcamstudio modprobe fails causing boot to hang

    After upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 without too many dramas (I couldn't get the gnome-theme-icon package but got around that), upon the reboot it hangs after showing
    install: cannot stat `webcamstudio.ko': No such file or directory
    make: *** [install] Error 1
     * Modprobe webcamstudio failed. Please use 'dmesg' to find out why.
    The vboxdrv modprobe also fails but it gets past that.
    Everything I've found refers to problems with the 2.6.38-9 Kernel but I'm using 2.6.38-13 (other users say their problem was fixed by installing the 2.6.38-11 kernel).

    Has anyone got any ideas before I go for a clean install?

    Re: Webcamstudio modprobe fails causing boot to hang

    I managed to remove webcamstudio and move onto the next problem, boot hanging at check battery state.
    I removed webcamstudio by
    sudo apt-get remove webcamstudio
    For the check battery state, after mucking around with reinstalling nvidia drivers, I came across some text saying
     kernel source for this kernel does not seem to be installed
    I ran
     sudo apt-get install linux-headers-(insert kernel version here)
    I then rebooted and have got a working system. There's still a few bugs but I'll get to them later.
