kudzu will be fixed in 0.99.28 or later. assigning to anaconda for the
module-info fix.

Comment 5 Jeremy Katz 2001-10-30 20:36:29 UTC
Added to module-info in CVS

Comment 6 Henry Ritzlmayr 2001-11-14 13:10:00 UTC

Is there going to be any "hot fix" for this bug?
I tried making a driver update disk.. but of course
it loads the dpt_i2o that I back ported to 2.4.7-10BOOT but then
loads i2o_block over the top.. stuffing it again

I had to go and fix all the pcitable's in the install set and module.cgz's
and burn my own custom install set.. 

Is there no other way? I have customers whining about this all the time,
and im sure there are others who would be turned off Redhat/Linux by this bug.
