properly. If we as users can't expect to be able to use this file
anymore, it would be user-friendlier for the package upgrade to tell us
so and state the correct alternative.
It does, it's not my fault if you can't read and/or understand warnings.
The insults aren't really necessary. If you're referring to:
WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong
then that doesn't really tell me how to fix anything (move modprobe.conf
into modprobe.d? Move the contents into their own files in modprobe.d?)
The modprobe.conf manpage, which I'd consider a logical place to look
for details, doesn't make any mention of this either. Incidentally, it
also mentions a generate_modprobe.conf script that is no longer
distributed with the package.
