Bug#256470: modconf: location of modprobe config files changed with module-init-tools

Package: modconf
Severity: grave
Justification: renders package unusable


I'm using module-init-tools 3.1-pre2-2 instead of modutils.

module-init-tools puts its config files in /etc/modprobe.d, not in
/etc/modprobe.conf, as modconf expects.

The problem had an easy workaround for me:

In /usr/share/modconf/params

<    CFGFILE=$Target/etc/modprobe.conf
>    CFGFILE=$Target/etc/modprobe.d

I guess this will need some additional checking to make it integrate
smoothly in the various possible configurations. It may even be better
not to specify a config file at all, and let modprobe find it itself.
Well the maintainer will decide.

Modconf also depends on modutils, but it is not necessary since it can
be replaced by module-init-tools.

Best regards,
