Description Martin Gramatke 2009-03-26 19:59:33 UTC
During boot I get this message:
"Please file a bug about /etc/modules.d/dvb: it needs an /etc/modprobe.d/dvb"

# cat /etc/modules.d/dvb
probeall /dev/dvb dvb-ttpci
alias /dev/dvb/* /dev/dvb
below dvb-ttpci alps_bsrv2 grundig_29504-401 grundig_29504-491 \
                ves1820 alps_tdmb7 alps_tdlb7 stv0299 evdev tda1004x

Unfortunately me and equery do not know to which package this file belongs.

Here is a guess:
# eix dvb -I

Please post the output of the following command:

  qfile -Cv /etc/modules.d/dvb

In case you don't have "qfile" installed on your system, emerge app-portage/portage-utils

# qfile -Cv /etc/modules.d/dvb

If no package owns that file, it should be safe to remove.
Comment 5 Martin Gramatke 2009-04-19 18:42:12 UTC
I deleted the file /etc/modules.d/dvb without any harm. The message is gone. Thanks.
