8.145. module-init-tools

Updated module-init-tools packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The module-init-tools packages include various programs needed for automatic loading and unloading of modules under 2.6 kernels, as well as other module management programs. Device drivers and file systems are two examples of loaded and unloaded modules.

Bug Fix

The modprobe utility did not previously recognize information about soft module dependencies in the modinfo section of the queried kernel modules. This update implements support for soft module dependencies, and the "modprobe --show-depends" command now returns this information as expected.
Users of module-init-tools are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
