Description bmacy 1999-04-24 22:45:30 EDT
I have multiple scsi adaptors. I boot off of one and have
devices not needed for boot attached to others. So I try to
use kmod to auto load the modules as needed. Problem is
depmod -a doesn't have a way to know the dependencies so I
have to do it manually each boot (since rc.sysinit rewrites
the modules.dep each boot). Features I'd like to see in
depmod:

- Ability to do a depmod -a that only adds dependencies to
modules.dep... if a dependency is already defined it
ignores it (unless the dependency is defined as no-deps)
- Ability to force a dependency (probably a new program)...
ie forcedep cdrom BusLogic
- Ability to specify more than one scsi_hostadaptor entry
in modules.conf... I don't care if it loads *all* the
modules any time a scsi device is accessed. This is only
really useful if you have one scsi module that is
dynamically loaded.

Anyways... if someone gives me the CVS source I'll add
these myself and submit the patch.
