Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 7487
The kmod script doesn't check to see if /proc/modules exist
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
Most of our webservers do not have module support compiled it. It slows
things down for some cases, and is a security risk.
I've noticed however that on the redhat based machines, there is an
excessive amount of email because the /etc/cron.d/kmod script does not
check for the existance of /proc/modules before executing.
Its 2 lines that need to be added to the script, and would most likely be
better run out of /etc/cron.hourly.
Fixed in modutils 2.3.7.
