Description Sergey S. Starikoff 2012-10-18 11:27:39 UTC
Usually I keep available one (or more, up to 3-4) previously used kernels.
If using only built-in kernel modules --- everything works fine independently on kernel version loaded.
But if you have to use additional kernel modules packages...
Really available (fully operable) could be only one version of kernel.

For example emulated just now procedure of kernel upgrade:

# eselect kernel list
Available kernel symlink targets:
  [1]   linux-3.3.8-gentoo *
  [2]   linux-3.4.9-gentoo
# qlist app-emulation/virtualbox-modules
/lib/modules/3.3.8-gentoo/misc/vboxdrv.ko
/lib/modules/3.3.8-gentoo/misc/vboxpci.ko
/lib/modules/3.3.8-gentoo/misc/vboxnetadp.ko
/lib/modules/3.3.8-gentoo/misc/vboxnetflt.ko
# eselect kernel set 2
# qlist app-emulation/virtualbox-modules
/lib/modules/3.4.9-gentoo/misc/vboxdrv.ko
/lib/modules/3.4.9-gentoo/misc/vboxpci.ko
/lib/modules/3.4.9-gentoo/misc/vboxnetadp.ko
/lib/modules/3.4.9-gentoo/misc/vboxnetflt.ko

So, actually kernel 3.3.8 becomes not full functional.
Similiar issue I remember much earlier with other packages.

To my mind, issue could be solved by redefining pkg_uninstall function in all kernel-modules ebuild to just:
return
leaving installed modules to be removed with ones installed with base kernel.

Comment 1 Sergey S. Starikoff 2013-11-13 11:29:34 UTC
Currently (sys-apps/portage-2.2.7) issue seems to be gone away, at least particularly:

After kernel upgrade (together with boot into new kernel) but prior to rebuild kernel modules package(s):

# qlist app-emulation/virtualbox-modules
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxnetflt.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxnetadp.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxpci.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxdrv.ko

# find /lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/ -type f -name 'vbox*'
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxnetadp.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxpci.ko

/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxsf.ko

/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxguest.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxnetflt.ko

Rebuild:

 * Removing app-emulation/virtualbox-modules-4.2.18 from moduledb.
>>> Original instance of package unmerged safely.
…
(portage cleaned module database and reports about success unmergeing package)

Now list of package's files points on new kernel:
# qlist app-emulation/virtualbox-modules
/lib/modules/3.10.17-aufs/misc/vboxnetflt.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.17-aufs/misc/vboxnetadp.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.17-aufs/misc/vboxpci.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.17-aufs/misc/vboxdrv.ko

But repeat check shows not changed list of files in modules directory of my previous kernel:
# find /lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/ -type f -name 'vbox*'
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxnetadp.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxpci.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxvideo.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxsf.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxdrv.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxguest.ko
/lib/modules/3.10.7-gentoo-r1/misc/vboxnetflt.ko

And it confuses me.

you've always had to rebuild packages when switching kernel versions.  this isn't new.  as for making things smoother by building modules for all available kernels, we have a bug for that.
