Description Paul Millar 1998-12-17 15:02:47 UTC
The default /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit file contains a section:

if [ -x /sbin/depmod -a -n "$USEMODULES" ]; then
    # Get ready for kerneld if module support in the kernel
    echo -n "Finding module dependencies... "
    if [ -e /lib/modules/preferred ]; then
        depmod -a preferred
    else
        depmod -a preferred
    fi
    echo "done"
fi


The second "depmod" line should be just:
        depmod -a


Apologies if this has already be spotted.

Cheers,
Paul.

What version of initscripts is installed on your system?

Find out by doing:

rpm -q initscripts

This problem should be fixed in initscripts-3.67-1 and newer.
