Re: Why are modules and modules.conf not versioned?

The background to this question is based on the fact that different versions of kernels such as 2.2.x and 2.4.x and also different custom kernels have different module requirements therefore switching between them is not seemless in the current system. I currently use woody. Hopefully this message is not totally off base.


There is no real need to version modules.conf or the files in
/etc/modutils/, because

| if `kernelversion` == 2.2
| ...
| elseif `kernelversion` == 2.4
| ...
| endif

Which file is this in?


works and should work on non-Debian systems, too. You can use `uname
-r` if you have to match the exact version.
