Missing Kernel Modules Make Lab 10.1 Impossible (with default kernel)
Note: Updated below in comments.
I am running Ubuntu 14.04 in a virtual machine via VMWare Player, and the machine image is that which is supplied by Linux Foundation Training.
After struggling with Lab 10.1 for some time, failing repeatedly and doing research on line, I discovered that I needed to load the dm-crypt kernel module. Modprobe failed saying that the module was not found. Digging around in /lib I found that the module(s) needed for cryptsetup to work properly were simply not there.
I eventually restarted the system, but chose to use an earlier kernel. Normally the system boots with kernel 4.10.0, but using the grub menu I booted with 3.13.0-113-generic. Checking /lib/modules/$(uname -r), I found all the modules that were needed to complete the exercise. I successfully completed the exercise.
My question is this: how do I install the missing modules for 4.10.0? I know there is a "shallow clone" of the source repository in the supplied image and it has these modules in it, but I don't know how to install them.
