Added an ignore feature. Now modules defined in the ignore array in /etc/modprobed_db.conf are removed from the db. For example, modules that are not a part of the linux kernel such as those installed by other packages like nvidia, virtualbox modules, etc.

That's why it didn't generate the modprobe.long file...

Nice catch, hasufell. Fixed in the -2 release.

"*/5 * * * * /usr/bin/modprobed_db > /dev/null 2>&1"

in crontab. not "". Please fix readme.install.

hey, i'll try this out. btw, i suggest setting the url to the thread in the bbs, or back here for recursively recursive recursivity.

Hope others find this as useful as I have! Basically, this keeps track of EVERY kernel module that has been probed. Why? Useful if you're one of us who likes to custom compile a kernel with precisely the needed modules and not a module more!
