Description Chris Runge 2000-06-24 01:01:01 UTC
after upgrading from 6.2, the initial boot says the following:

Finding module dependencies depmod: invalid option -- A
depmod 2.3.10-pre1
depmod -a [-n -e -v -q -V]
       [-C configfile] [-F kernelsyms] [-b basedirectory] [forced_version]
depmod [-n -e -v -q] [-f kernelsysms] module1.o module2.o ...
If no arguments (expect options) are given, "depmod -a" is assumed

depmod will output a dependency list suitable for the modprobe utility.
depmod -a will find the list of moduules to probe from the file
/etc/modules.conf. It will output the result into the depfile specified
in this configuration file

Normally depmod operates silently, reporting only the list of modules that
won't load properly (missing symbols).
Option -q will make depmod keep quiet about missing symbols
Option -e output all the unresolved symbol for a given module

This almost certainly happens because you had mkbootdisk installed before, and
modutils didn't get updated because of conflicts!
