I have installed the RH 6.1 linux. On the first boot I saw the following

conf:1: missing argument

can't open

When I tracked down I saw that the depmod -a was generating this error

The modules.dep file was not created!

open("",O_WRONLY|O_CREAT|O_TRUNC,0666)=-1 ENOENT (no such file or
Comment 1 Simon Csaba Endre 1999-12-15 08:42:59 EST
After I removed the first line form conf.modules the depmod -a no more failed.
The install program put the following lines in the conf.modules:

alias cdu31a
options cdu31a cdu31a_port=0x340

This is fixed in the latest version of the installer available in RawHide.
