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

Okay. I guess modules.conf will provide everything that a person could
use. I personally think that this is way harder than other things in
Debian. For special cases or difficult cases then okay but for normal
cases I think this is too much. For me Debian is appealing as it just
works when you install things but this is definitely a weak point IMHO.
Normally the modconf program lets you install modules with options if
needed and it just works. This doesn't work across vastly different
kernels such as a Woody 2.2.x to 2.4.x upgrade or custom kernels that
have different module requirements perhap because some are build in if
you want to boot to different kernels. Is it possible that this should
be changed somehow since the kernels are so modular or is kernel
experimentation just for people who want to hand tweak the modules.conf
Is it really just not required to build custom kernels now-a-days? Sorry
for the prodding but I just hate when things are hard.
