Summary: Utilities to load modules into the kernel
kmod is a set of tools to handle common tasks with Linux kernel
modules like insert, remove, list, check properties, resolve
dependencies and aliases.

These tools are designed on top of libkmod, a library that is shipped
with kmod. The aim is to be compatible with tools, configurations and
indexes from module-init-tools project.

  - Drop the non-upstream kmod-no-static.diff; the size difference is
* Tue Jan 07 2014
  - Update to new upstream release 16
    * The option to wait on module removal has been removed from the
    kernel, and now from rmmod. The constant KMOD_REMOVE_NOWAIT in
    libkmod is still there for backwards compatibility but it is
    always enforced, passing O_NONBLOCK to delete_module(2).
* Mon Sep 02 2013
  - Update to new upstream release 15
    * kmod static-nodes no longer fails if modules.devname does not exist
    * Fix getting boolean parameter from kernel cmdline in case the

    * Some bug fixes and a new "static-nodes" command to parse
* Mon Apr 15 2013
  - Update to new upstream release 13

    * depmod: fix builtin symbols resolution when the prefix symbol is set
    * libkmod: Use secure_getenv if available
    * rmmod: Teach rmmod about builtin modules
    * libkmod: add finit_module logic
    * modprobe: Fix assertion on --show-depends with bogus config file
    * Many other bugfixes see
* Thu Dec 06 2012
  - Update to new upstream release 12
    * Fix removing vermagic from module when told to force load a module
    * Fix removing __versions section when told to force load a
    module: we need to mangle the section header, not the section.
    * modinfo no longer fails while loading a module from file when
    path contains ".ko" substring
* Fri Nov 23 2012
  - Require suse-module-tools now that it is present in Base:System
  - kmod-compat depends on kmod, add that missing Requires.
* Sat Nov 10 2012
  - Update to kmod-11
    * Fix testsuite defining symbols twice on 32 bit systems
    * Allow to check generated files against correct ones
    * libkmod now keeps a file opened after the first call to
    * kmod_module_get_{info,versions,symbols,dependency_symbols}. This
    reduces signficantly the amount of time depmod tool takes to
    execute. Particularly if compressed modules are used.
    * Remove --with-rootprefix from build system. It was not a great
    idea after all and should not be use since it causes more harm
    than benefits.
    * Hide --wait option on rmmod. This feature is being targeted for
    removal from kernel. rmmod still accepts this option, but it is
    hidden now: man page and usage() says nothing about it and if
    it is used, user will get a 10s sleep. This way we can check and
    help if anyone is using this feature.
    * Refactor message logging on all tools, giving proper prefix,
    routing everything to syslog when asked for, etc.
    * Fix parsing of modules.order when using compressed modules
    * Usage messages go to stdout instead of stderr
    * Fix memory leak in hash implementation
* Thu Sep 13 2012
  - Provide the "modutils" virtual symbol
  - Update to new upstream release 10
    * Read coresize from /sys if supported
    * Add flag to kmod_module_probe_insert() to apply blacklisting
    during probe only if mod is an alias. Now modprobe uses this
    flag by default.
* Wed Jun 20 2012
  - Update to new upstream release 9
    * build-sys: allow compressed modules in testsuite
    * build-sys: Make dirs writable on rootfs creation
    * depmod: use ferror and fclose to check for error
    * depmod: return error when index is truncated due to ENOSPC
    * depmod: fix coding-style issue in array declaration
    * depmod: fail if any index could not be created
