What modutils do you have installed?
Comment 2 Robert Franchisseur 2001-08-14 18:32:21 EDT
modutils-2.3.21-0.6.2

but if I replace conf.modules by modules.conf in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit it works
Comment 3 Robert Franchisseur 2001-08-15 11:41:59 EDT
I just discovered that mkkickstart also relies on conf.modules and *NOT*
modules.conf

white:/users/robert > mkkickstart 
...

device ethernet grep: /etc/conf.modules: No such file or directory
grep: /etc/conf.modules: No such file or directory

I think all of the issues here have been cleared up (and we're on to
modprobe.conf). For forcing modules to load in Fedora Core, see bug
#123927.
