You should use modprobe instead of insmod. Insmod needs the full
pathname to the module, and you have to take care of loading any
modules that are required for the proper operation of the module
yourself. Modprobe will take care of that for you, as well as
knowing the path to the standard kernel modules.

It will have problems if you compile your own module, and do not
install them in the modules directory, and have not run depmod after
doing this.
