Description Glauber Costa 2007-08-21 23:08:34 EDT
Linux build system can install modules into an alternate directory through
INSTALL_MOD_PATH environment variable. However, current mkinitrd will always
search for modules in /lib/modules.

It would be nice to have the tool to search the modules from the freshly
installed alternate location.

I'm attaching a proposed patch for this.

mkinitrd now uses modprobe, from module-init-tools to accomplish this task.  If
this functionality is still desired, it'd need to be added there.
