Description Joshua Jensen 2008-05-30 00:11:26 EDT
Description of problem:

release notes to need mention missing /etc/modprobe.conf... before references
writing or appending to it.  A reference as to why it isn't created by default
might make sense here as well

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

F9 release-notes

We are using modprobe.d instead of a static modprobe.conf file. You can refer to
the man page of modprobe.conf for further details. I will leave this bug report
open to consider making a release note on this for the next release.
Comment 2 Joshua Jensen 2008-05-30 10:17:31 EDT
I know that *now*... but that is sort of my point.  When the release notes
themselves refer to writing or appending to a non-existent file, more
explanation might be in order.
Comment 3 Rahul Sundaram 2008-05-30 12:53:53 EDT
You can create a static file and that would just work as well. By default, there
is no file necessary. So there isn't one created.
