Description Bill Nottingham 2006-01-09 21:29:01 UTC
Right now, we patch the module tools to automatically include modprobe.conf.dist.

This needs to be reworked to fit in better with upstream, either using include
statements (including adding the necessary include with a %post program) or
using /etc/modprobe.d.

Also, modprobe.conf.dist probably could stand some pruning - there's decent
chunks of it that aren't relevant any more.

what do you mean? get rid of module-init-tools-allconf.patch ??

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-01-24 18:57:19 UTC
Hm, looking at it again...

The issue is that current upstream module-init-tools only supports either
a) /etc/modprobe.conf
b) /etc/modprobe.d

We patch it to read modprobe.conf, then modprobe.d. If we went with upstream, we
would in theory have to move modprobe.conf to modprobe.d. However, that means
the first app to write a modprobe.conf (crappy nVidia %post script, or
something) would cause all the default state to not get read.  So maybe that's
not the best solution.

Probably best to just keep changing this for our packages.
