Updated kmod package fixes wrong module search orderPublication date: 03 May 2014
Affected Mageia releases : 3 , 4
The depmod tool in Mageia 3 and Mageia 4 contains a bug which causes, under some circumstances, an installed "X-kernel-Y" package (e.g. "nvidia-current-kernel-3.12.13-desktop-2.mga4") of an older version to override a newer installed "dkms-X" package (e.g. "dkms-nvidia-current"), instead of the correct behavior where "dkms-X" should override the binary module packages. If this happens with the proprietary NVIDIA driver, for example, the system may not boot up properly as the X server startup will encounter errors due to a kernel module version mismatch. This update fixes that issue.
