/etc/rc.local is executed last, perhaps the LCDd startup script (if you
are using one) is executing before the rc.local stuff hence the module
is not yet loaded. Which distro are you using?
In any case, make sure that the LCDd startup script or command is
executed *after* the module is loaded. I, personally, load the module
within the startup script and then start LCDd. I see this option is also
used by others.
