Description Keith Owens 1999-10-08 09:50:35 UTC
As modutils maintainer, the inconsistent use of conf.modules instead of modules.conf has been annoying me. Starting with modutils-2.3.4, modutils will warn about conf.modules. When kernel/modutils 2.5 is released, that warning will become an error. I am notifying all distributions that I can contact about this change and requesting that all documentation (other than modutils itself) be checked for conf.modules and changed where necessary.

Duly noted. Initial plan is to move conf.modules to modules.conf on upgrade, & create a symlink (and fix the various tools). Probably won't be implemented here for a little while, though.

This still hasn't been resolved in current Rawhide. Considering I'd say the chances are medium-high to high that 2.4.x will come out after the release of the next version of Red Hat, and that at the same time, people will need to upgrade modutils for stuff to work "correctly", it would be good if all the tools already knew they should be using modules.conf instead of conf.modules.

It has been fixed for some time now.
