UPDATE-MODULES(8)                   Debian                   UPDATE-MODULES(8)



NAME
       update-modules - obsolete command

SYNOPSIS
       update-modules

DESCRIPTION
       update-modules is an obsolete command. In its current form it will exe-
       cute /sbin/update-modules.modutils (the old update-modules program pro-
       vided by the modutils package) if it exists and do nothing else.

       Note  that  the  file /etc/modprobe.conf is not the exact equivalent of
       /etc/modules.conf.  It is not required for module-init-tools and is not
       generated  any  more.  In fact, most people should not create that file
       since /etc/modprobe.d/* would be ignored in this case but Debian  pack-
       ages store their additional configuration files in /etc/modprobe.d/.

SEE ALSO
       depmod(1) modprobe(8) modprobe.conf(5)

BUGS
       This  program  should  be removed after modutils will have been removed
       from the distribution and no package will try to use it anymore.
