Re: Why does modules.conf go in /etc, anyway?

I don't see any good reason why, but if there is a need to make
that work, then change the rule to:
iff exists /etc/modules.conf, use that. updated-modules just spews a
else, use /var/cache/modutils/modules. update-modules
file with no worries about policy.
Didn't debconf ask me something like that yesterday?
My psychic powers say 'sort of', because you already had an
/etc/modules.conf file and it was not generated by
update-modules, but it wasn't debconf.
Also, I sense that modutils will delete a '/etc/init.d/modclean'
file without prompting the user.
 Reading of /var/lib/dpkg/info/modutils.postinst
 My reading of FHS says /var/cache is appropriate. /var/lib
too bad, though, if modutils can't be made to call update-modules
automatically if the file does not exist.
