Description Florian La Roche 2007-05-28 11:30:55 EDT
Description of problem: module-init-tools and hwdata packages contain the files blacklist and blacklist-compat in /etc/modprobe.d/. Difference in these files seems to be only in one also blacklisting matrxfb_base. Can one of these files be removed and the data on be maintained in one package? regards, Florian La Roche Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info:

I wonder if this belongs in the hwdata package. Shall I kill it from m-i-t? Jon.
Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2007-05-29 12:50:42 EDT
adding Harald to CC: Harald: can you remember why you have added blacklist-compat to module-init-tools ??
Comment 3 Harald Hoyer 2007-05-29 13:13:36 EDT
was it me? only remember to have added various framebuffer modules..
Comment 4 Harald Hoyer 2007-05-29 13:16:04 EDT
yes, framebuffer modules, which were autoloaded by udev have been added by me.
Comment 5 Florian La Roche 2007-05-29 16:53:05 EDT
If it needs editing more often, then hwdata is anyway changed in most update releases and might make more sense. For /etc/modprobe.d/ it would also be good if only files with a certain ending would be used like *.conf as then backup files would not accidentially be read in etc. greetings, Florian La Roche
Comment 6 Harald Hoyer 2007-05-31 12:02:37 EDT
blacklist-compat can be removed, if the modules in it are mentioned in another place. framebuffer modules must _not_ be loaded automatically by udev.
Comment 7 Karsten Hopp 2007-06-25 06:24:38 EDT
Harald: I've added 'blacklist matrxfb_base' to hwdata's blacklist (Rawhide). JCM: Please remove the file blacklist-compat from module-init-tools as it is obsolete now. comment #5 still needs to be solved. At least hwdata would require some minor changes to use blacklist.conf instead of 'blacklist'. Maybe it would suffice to exclude files ending with '~' from being read ? Atm modprobe reads every file in that directory without exception.
Comment 8 Florian La Roche 2007-06-25 06:26:35 EDT
I've opened up another bz for comment #5. Seems also the kernel now starts shipping blacklist files, so the number of dependencies is growing. ;-( regards, Florian La Roche
Comment 9 Harald Hoyer 2007-06-27 04:39:07 EDT
Karsten, I do not own module-init-tools anymore.
Comment 10 Jon Masters 2007-08-20 03:17:10 EDT
Ok. I will remove the obsolete file. Jon.
