Description R P Herrold 2001-03-04 17:29:39 UTC
RBBeta 7.1RC1 -- kudzu-0.97.4-1 -- imaccuratyely removed a dual port Cpmpaq
T-LAN secondary NIC pair on an upgrade from 7.1RC1 ... but this is not my

the strteup process, it displayed a boot time message that
/etc/modules.conf had a later datestamp that /lib/mod/(ver)/modules.dep --

Solution -- Run depmod -a at the end of ALL kudzu sessions.

Issue continues with QA0322 ...

Comment 2 Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2001-04-03 03:54:48 UTC
still on qa0328

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-03 04:11:12 UTC
Um, yeah. I seriously doubt I'll change this, as running depmod
here is completely bogus.

Comment 4 R P Herrold 2001-04-03 13:08:11 UTC
Proposed alternative fix to hide this message, when editting /etc/modules.conf
-- just:

1.  sleep 1 second
2. _touch_ /lib/mod/.../modules.dep

Voila -- no more inappropiate message

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-07-06 22:59:41 UTC
the message has been taken out of modutils-2.4.6-1.
