-= Proposal for kernel-modules directory (post-sarge) =- As you all know, Debian kernel modules reside in /usr/src/modules. I would like to propose to change this to a more "apache-config-like" behavoir, means having a directory /usr/src/modules-availible and /usr/src/modules-enabled and doing symlinks to from first to second dir. Advantages: =========== + gives the posibility to run "make-kpkg modules" and only build specified kernel-modules, without needing to delete the unwanted ones. + source of kernel-modules can be updated more easily. + source of kernel-modules do not reside in tar.gz or tar.bz2 in /usr/src any more (which is not standardised BTW). Disadvantages: ============== + needs a change of every existing kernel-module-source package + needs a change of "kernel-package" Greetings Martin -- Fly me away to the bright side of the moon ...
