Issue continues with QA0322 ...
Comment 2 Arenas Belon, Carlo Marcelo 2001-04-02 23:54:48 EDT
still on qa0328
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-03 00:11:12 EDT
Um, yeah. I seriously doubt I'll change this, as running depmod
here is completely bogus.
Comment 4 R P Herrold 2001-04-03 09:08:11 EDT
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 18:59:41 EDT
the message has been taken out of modutils-2.4.6-1.
