Description of problem:
It appears that in the latest errata release of module-init-tools (3.2-0.pre9.0.FC4.1), modprobe.conf.dist has moved from /etc to /etc/modprobe.d. However, modprobe.conf still references /etc/modprobe.conf.dist:
This results in the following message every time modprobe is run:
WARNING: Failed to open included config file /etc/modprobe.conf.dist: No such file or directory
I see this on every machine on which the errata package has been installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Upgrade to module-init-tools-3.2-0.pre9.0.FC4.1 on an existing FC4 system.
2. Run "modprobe xxx"
Actual Results: WARNING: Failed to open included config file /etc/modprobe.conf.dist: No such file or directory
Expected Results: The package upgrade process should have updated the path in modprobe.conf (?).
Hmm, it looks like the "include" line may have actually been left over from a
previous version of FC.

- always include /etc/modprobe.conf.dist (don't require the line in
So it seems I should just remove it. Closing.
