Description Tony Murray 2002-11-27 08:10:47 UTC
I am making an ebuild for module-init-tools. This is the new version of modutils
for the development kernel, if you have 2.5.47 or greater, you need this to make
modules work.

When the makefile installs, it moves the old mod utils to *.old (examp
/sbin/insmod -> /sbin/insmod.old). The reason it does this is that so when you
use an older kernel, it will use the older modutils...

I am not sure how to handle this with portage. Any thoughts on how I could make
this work?

This is a fully working ebuild...
The only problem is that it overwrites the modutils files.
It does manage to retain backawards compatability with them though.
Would be nice to change the development-kernel to depend on this.

New ebuild, added the translation of modules.conf -> modprobe.conf
(modules.conf is unchanged) and added dependency on development-kernel >=

Updates to new version, fixes needed for 2.5.48+ not 2.5.47.
Renaming the old modutils made much slicker, thanks to an change from rusty for
me ;)

ok, I'm poking at it, didn't work quite right the way it was, but I'll have it
under control momentarily.  Just ripping out the rename code from the makefile
since the makefile has /sbin specified literally not variably

in portage, check it out, enjoy, and e-mail me if I forked it in any way.
