Kmod 15, an open source project that provides a collection of tools for Linux kernel developers to manage modules, has been announced by Lucas De Marchi.
Kmod 15 comprises a series of tools, which includes depmod, modinfo, rmmod, insmod or modprobe, and which can be used to perform all sorts of maintenance work on the Linux kernel modules.
“The kmod tool (and thus modprobe, lsmod, depmod and all compat tools) links statically to libkmod now. In kmod 14 we disabled building the static library because it was causing problems to some projects.”
“Linking our tool statically to the library is kind of an workaround for people doing initrd needing their tools to be statically linked,” stated Lucas De Marchi in the Linux kernel mailing list.
A complete list of changes and improvements can be found in the official announcement. Download Kmod 15 right now from Softpedia.
