Would be easier for me to change kernels if ebuilds that build modules had a
flag that could be queried on, ie iptables, alsa.
I know there aren't that many, but I forgot sometimes to rebuild packages, and
when offering binaries on my binhost, I have to remember to delete the packages
those packages so they won't be downloaded (if client has different kernel than
Steps to Reproduce:
`qpkg -f /lib/modules`
qpkg -f /lib/modules doesn't return any results for me. Do I need to type
anything else along with it?
I have alsa, iptables, & vmare that I know should show up.
iptables and vmware should not show up, they dont install kernel modules
alsa-drivers should show up ... try `qpkg -l alsa-drivers`
Since I have seen several questions like this on the gentoo-user mailing list, and the fact that I have been bitten a couple of times by forgetting to recompile packages after recompiling a kernel. I created kernelmod-rebuild. See bug 34921 where I submitted the ebuild for where to get the ebuild.

My 2 cents:
Actually the emerge of vmware don't directly install kernel modules, but the
next step to make it work after emerge is actually to run the vmware-config and
it will compile at least 1 module: The vmware monitor... And if you need
networking in the guest OS, you need additional modules... (cf
Putting a hold on feature requests for portage as they are drowning out the
bugs. Most of these features should be available in the next major version of
portage. But for the time being, they are just drowning out the major bugs and
delaying the next version's progress.
Any bugs that contain patches and any bugs for etc-update or dispatch-conf can
be reopened. Sorry, I'm just not good enough with bugzilla. ;)
should probably wait on dep-level tracking to get done, then it's usually no longer a special case ( module providing ebuilds should already dep on kernel-soruces ).
