I'm running kernel version 3.7.5 and after the update that got me to that version, it appears to have completely borked VFAT and kernel modules in general. My system still runs fine, but the vfat module is missing and cannot be loaded with modprobe or insmod. Oddly, the kernel object exists in /usr/lib/modules, yet my system seems to be ignoring it. Upon further investigation, it appears that it is impossible to load or remove ANY modules using modprobe or insmod. I recently did a reinstall of Arch, following exactly the steps in the Beginner's Guide, if that makes any difference.
Help? Please? I need the vfat module loaded before I can compile a custom kernel (my next big project)

After updating the kernel, reboot your pc
"open source is about choice"
Open source is about opening the source code complying with this conditions, period. The ability to choose among several packages is just a nice side effect.
yup, that worked *facepalm* marking as solved.
