Description drF_ckoff 2004-04-13 11:30:15 MSD
From time to time on startup i see "blah blah is more recent than blah blah".
But before it i see "Finding module dependencies ... [done]". So i think that
depmod -a is run on readonly filesystem =/
Comment 1 Dmitry V. Levin 2004-04-14 15:59:38 MSD
$ egrep 'remount,rw|depmod -' /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit 
action "Remounting root filesystem in read/write mode:" mount -n -o remount,rw / 
        INITLOG_ARGS= action "Finding module dependencies:" depmod -A 
Looks like one of your rc scripts modifies modules.conf 
Comment 2 Dmitry V. Levin 2004-04-16 23:24:03 MSD
It's a "depmoid -A" malfunction on 2.6.x kernels. 
Comment 3 Dmitry V. Levin 2004-04-16 23:25:42 MSD
Reassigned to modutils maintainer. 
Comment 4 Sergey Vlasov 2004-06-27 21:10:56 MSD
Fixed in modutils-2.4.27-alt2.

The bug was worse than reported - depmod -A did not work correctly even for
2.4.x (it was rebuilding all dependencies every time).
