Hmm I'm not used to using kinfocenter. Try the following as root:
uname -r
-will give you the version of your current running kernel
-check if the module is indeed in /lib/modules/<version>/ (and not
installed for some other kernel version)
- then try to load it with insmod instead of modprobe
insmod /lib/modules/<version/.../slamr.ko
and note what kind of output this gives in errors etc.
