Description Gavin Davenport 2007-01-04 15:23:53 EST
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. attempt to run /sbin/generate-modprobe.conf
Actual results:
Cannot find old version of modprobe. Giving up.

Expected results:
Huge list of entries suitable for use in modprobe.conf

Additional info:
Bug is here:
   34     modprobe.old -c > $MODPROBECONF
     35 elif /sbin/modprobe -V 2>/dev/null | grep -q 'modprobe version'; then
     36     # Running /sbin/modprobe gives old version.
     37     /sbin/modprobe -c > $MODPROBECONF
It should say:
   34     modprobe.old -c > $MODPROBECONF
     35 elif /sbin/modprobe -V 2>/dev/null | grep -q 'module-init-tools
version'; then
     36     # Running /sbin/modprobe gives old version.
     37     /sbin/modprobe -c > $MODPROBECONF

Sorry I'm not up to creating patches, I'll just make a hash of it

Comment 4 Jon Masters 2008-04-04 11:37:09 EDT
This is not a bug. generate-modprobe.conf is looking for the original version of
/sbin/modprobe, not the new version you might have just installed :) I'm closing
this as this should not even remotely be an issue on fc8.
