Description Jan 2016-06-20 11:38:47 UTC
Description of problem:
While installing the system, the kmod package is installed but not all links it should provide are present. modinfo command is missing.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. When installing the system add rd.break=pre-pivot to boot options and start installation
2. run modinfo command when prompt is shown (e.g. "pre-pivot:/# modinfo -h")

Actual results:
Call results in "sh: modinfo: command not found"

Expected results:
modinfo command is executed

Additional info:
Bug found on RHEL 7.2, Fedora does not seem to have this problem.

kmod provides functionality of modinfo (as well as for e.g. modprobe and depmod) via link file. "ln -s /usr/bin/kmod /usr/sbin/modinfo" fixes the problem
