The Linux kernel allows new kernel pieces to be loaded and old ones to
be unloaded while the kernel continues to run. These loadable pieces
are called modules, and can include device drivers and filesystems among
other things. This package includes program to load and unload programs
both automatically and manually.
This set does not include 'request-route' script nor kerneld (still
present in sources). It is compiled without support for 2.0 kernels,
if you want modutils to run on old kernels, change --disable-compat-2-0
to --enable in the spec file. It includes insmod.static for mkinitrd.
