View Full Version : Problem with modules.dep

01-14-2004, 10:50 PM
I'm having an issue with my modules.dep file. When I boot up it can't find it, and it's looking in /lib/modules/extra when my modules.dep seems to be located in /lib/modules/linux-2.4.22-xfs (I think that's where it was). So it can't load any of my modules. How can I change where it looks for the modules.dep file in? Thanks...btw, I'm not completely sure what I did to screw it up like this...I assume it was messing around with ALSA.

I had this same problem. I solved it by creating the directory extra within /lib /modules and using the command touch to create a modules.dep within the new directory. To test it, I issued the command depmod -a. Everything seems to work ok now.

I'd be interested to know if anybody has an explanation as to why this happened.

I'm running knoppix 3.3 V3.3-2003-11-19.
