Re: Request for the Linux Dev Driver folks: module auto-comp
there is a bazillion linux distributions out there.
And ca bazillion/2 ways to boot.
You CAN NOT make a single 'modules autobuild' script that works everywhere. You can not even make one working on all the major distris.
So if someone is able to make such a script, it is the distribution. They know, how they boot, which init they use, the structure of their init-scripts and where such a function would fit. And they are the only one who know that. Nobody else.
That said. How many times does someone installs a new kernel and needs to reinstall the driver? And how hard is it to log in as root and let the installer run? Restarting X afterwards?
