[Bug 252257] Re: please backport kvm

I've grabbed the intrepid sources for KVM, compiled, installed kvm and

I then do:

  module-assistant auto-install --force kvm

and kvm-modules-2.6.24-19-generic is built and installed.  This installs
the modules under:


Now, "depmod -a" only finds the modules under


as does modprobe.

However, I can insmod the modules from kvm-modules-2.6.24-19-generic so
they appear to be fine for the current kernel.

So, is there subtle packaging issue where this would work with the
intrepid kernel but not the hardy one?

The main consideration is that the kvm-modules package might need to
dpkg-divert the kvm modules installed as part of the main kernel
package.  kvm-modules could then install its modules over the top... or
elsewhere as it does currently.

I'm obviously missing something...  :-)


peace & happiness,

please backport kvm
