Package: debian-installer
Version: beta4 (20040429)
Severity: minor

If I reboot my system shortly after the installation is completed (including 
2nd stage), I will get the following warning several times during boot:
   Modprobe: Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than 

These messages disappear when the reboot takes place more than 2 hours after 

Cause of this error is timezone configuration during 2nd stage: Netherlands 
(UTC+02:00) with internal clock _not_ set to UTC.
- during 1st stage:
  . /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/modules.dep is created, e.g. with time 17:12
  . /etc/modules.conf is created, e.g. with time 17:18
- during reboot after 1st stage module dependencies are calculated:
  . /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/modules.dep is updated, e.g. with time 17:23
- after timezone configuration 'ls --full-time' shows
  . /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/modules.dep 19:23 +02:00
  . /etc/modules.conf 19:18 +02:00
- during next reboot, modules.dep is again updated, for example:
  . /lib/modules/<kernelversion>/modules.dep 17:45 +02:00
At that moment the timestamp for modules.dep is smaller than for modules.conf, 
resulting in the warnings during the rest of the boot.

This could easily be avoided by touching both files during 2nd stage 
installation (after timezone configuration) if UTC=no in /etc/defaults/rcS.
Something like the code below would do this, but I am not sure where best to 
include it as I think it should only be run during initial configuration.

if grep "^UTC=no" /etc/default/rcS >/dev/null; then
	touch /etc/modules.conf
	if [ -f /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep ] ; then
		touch /lib/modules/`uname -r`/modules.dep

(Note: '^UTC=no' is necessary because UTC=no is also part of a comment;
'^[:blanc:]*UTC=no' should also work.)

     - Improved the pon menu item's .tst file.
     - Ask apt-setup/cd/another at high priority. Closes: #244577
     - Patch from Frans Pop to work around modules.conf/modules.dep timestamp
       problem that occurs if the time zone configuration during initial
       install moves the timestamps of these files into the future. Then on
       reboot, modules.dep is updated, and ends up having an earlier timestamp
       than modules.conf, which resulted in an error. To fix, touch both files
       after changing time zone. Closes: #246993
     - Add support for jumping around in the menu via a jump-to file that
       the name of a menu item can be written to.
     - Support menu files that are symlinks, as used by debian-edu-install.
   * Denis Barbier
     - Add support for ISO-8859-9 encoding for Turkish.  Closes: #247324
