Description bmacy 1999-04-25 02:45:30 UTC
I have multiple scsi adaptors. I boot off of one and have devices not needed for boot attached to others. So I try to use kmod to auto load the modules as needed. Problem is depmod -a doesn't have a way to know the dependencies so I have to do it manually each boot (since rc.sysinit rewrites the modules.dep each boot). Features I'd like to see in depmod: - Ability to do a depmod -a that only adds dependencies to modules.dep... if a dependency is already defined it ignores it (unless the dependency is defined as no-deps) - Ability to force a dependency (probably a new program)... ie forcedep cdrom BusLogic - Ability to specify more than one scsi_hostadaptor entry in modules.conf... I don't care if it loads *all* the modules any time a scsi device is accessed. This is only really useful if you have one scsi module that is dynamically loaded. Anyways... if someone gives me the CVS source I'll add these myself and submit the patch. Brian Macy
