The tp_smapi modules are built for the vanilla kernel, they won't work
with the PAE even if you move them. You need to install tp_smapi-dkms
from the AUR and build the modules using DKMS (this should be done by
the install file upon installation, be sure to be running the PAE kernel
when you do this).
