4.66. module-init-tools

Updated module-init-tools packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The module-init-tools packages include various programs needed for automatic loading and unloading of modules under kernel versions 2.6 and later, as well as other module management programs. Device drivers and file systems are two examples of loaded and unloaded modules.

Bug Fix

Updating kmod-kvm after a kernel update had been performed caused a broken symbolic link to the kvm.ko module due to the link pointing to the old kernel's kvm.ko module. Now, the new version of kmod-kvm is updated, and broken symbolic links no longer occur in the described scenario.
Users of module-init-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
