depmod restored

October 12, 2010 — BarryK
I have restored the full depmod to its proper name, from 'depmod-FULL' to 'depmod'.

The Busybox depmod is still executed in /etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit (by executing 'busybox depmod') as this is required in low-RAM situations (old PCs with 64MB or less of RAM).

This solves problems that we have been encountering, with applications/scripts that require the full depmod.

Note that 'depmod-FULL' still exists, but is now a symlink to 'depmod' -- this is done as some Puppy scripts expect 'depmod-FULL' to exist.

"..This solves problems .. with applications/scripts.." Pardon my ignorance but will this resolve sound issues? Never encountered these with previous Puppies.
