That's a very short list of mudules! What you need to do is, as root
(using 'sudo' seems to be the way the ubuntus do it) is run 'modprobe visor'
when the system boots.
First, make sure that you have the visor module in the subdirectory of
modules for the kernel version you're running. Second, add that module to
whatever file holds modules you eant loaded when the system boots.
Slackware is all I use, and here that module is in
(this host runs the 32-bit flavor, but it's in the equivalent subdirectory
on the 64-bit hosts).
Then, in /etc/rc.d/rc.local I have the line
# load driver for PDA
and lsmod shows
visor 6726 0
usbserial 20597 1 visor
among all the loaded drivers.
