module-rebuild [options] action [category/package] Version: 0.5 Where options are: -X - Emerge based on package names, not exact versions. -C - Disable all coloured output. Where action is one of: add - Add package to moduledb. del - Delete a package from moduledb. toggle - Toggle auto-rebuild of Package. list - List packages to auto-rebuild. rebuild - Rebuild packages. populate - Populate the database with any packages which currently install drivers into the running kernel. These options are inconsistent with the ones used by all other gentoo/genkernel/portage stuff. A while ago, portage changed from # emerge unmerge <ebuild> to # emerge --unmerge <ebuild> for consistency. My request is to have the same consistency for module-rebuild... for one simple reason: I always write # module-rebuild --rebuild followed by me shouting "S*1T!" (which is bad if my kids are around!), followed by # module-rebuild rebuild (which always makes me whish for one consistent way for these options/actions/... whatever you call it). It really should be "module-rebuild --action". As I'm not really qualified to change this myself, so I RQ this here. Thanks.
