I've finally got my first Gentoo box to boot on its own (Huzzah!), however, there are a series of (apparently non-critical) errors that pop up during the boot process that I'd like to nail down and deal with. The one that pops up the most appears to be:
Code:
insmod: Note: /etc/modules.conf is more recent than /lib/modules/2.4.32-sparc-r4/modules.dep


This is discussed in another topic, and indeed, if I look at those two module files, the creation dates are different:

Code:
domest ~ # ls -l /etc/modules.conf
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 1903 May  9 14:37 /etc/modules.conf
domest ~ # ls -l /lib/modules/2.4.32-sparc-r4/modules.dep
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 4232 May  8 17:04 /lib/modules/2.4.32-sparc-r4/modules.dep


But the other thread doesn't tell how he updated the modules.dep to be newer. Is there a program that should be run to get the two in sync, or can I just do something like:
Code:
domest ~ # touch /lib/modules/2.4.32-sparc-r4/modules.dep

to get modules.dep to be newer?

Thanks much!

Try running:

depmod -a

and see if it helps.
