You shouldn't need to do anything beyond this. There are a few things  
that you should check. Firstly, make sure that your running kernel  
matches the model you have installed - you can check the running  
kernel with uname -r. It's possible that you've upgraded the kernel,  
but not yet rebooted.

Secondly, run depmod -a, just to make sure that the module dependency  
information is up to date.

I think you've probably got a mismatch between AFS module, and  
running kernel version, though.
