re kernel-2.6.0-test: what to do with /etc/modprobe.conf??



  based on my reading, the new kernel prefers to read from the
file /etc/modprobe.conf, rather than the older /etc/modules.conf.

  to help in the migration, there is the utility
"generate-modprobe.conf", but in this situation, it doesn't work --
it fails complaining of a missing "modprobe.old".

  i'm suspecting that generate-modprobe.conf was written with the
assumption that one would have upgraded separately to the newer
version of modutils, which was backwards compatible and, IIRC,
moved the older versions of the module commands to their
corresponding ".old" names.

  this is, i'm guessing, what generate-modprobe.conf is looking
for, but severn, since it comes with the newer version of 
modutils already, has no such ".old" backups.  hence the failure.

  thoughts?
