Description Richard Yao gentoo-dev 2013-06-06 05:01:37 UTC
The comments in modutils/depmod.c suggest that option -b is supported, but this does not appear to be the case when running `busybox depmod -b / -n`. On the other hand, `busybox depmod -n` works. A comment in a commit from the upstream repository suggests that -b should work:

http://git.busybox.net/busybox/commit/modutils/depmod.c?h=1_15_stable&id=35261159e6ccddcb36fce427d04b93e119c116c0

It looks like getopt32() is failing. Fixing this should enable easy resolution of bug #472312, which is blocking genkernel stabilization.
