Summary: Utilities to load modules into the kernel
kmod is a set of tools to handle common tasks with Linux kernel
modules like insert, remove, list, check properties, resolve
dependencies and aliases.

These tools are designed on top of libkmod, a library that is shipped
with kmod. The aim is to be compatible with tools, configurations and
indexes from module-init-tools project.

* Fri Jan 29 2021 Dominique Leuenberger <>
  - Supplement bash-completion subpackage against the main package
    and bash-completion.
  - Also require the main package plus bash-completion: the
    completion package is useless without either of the two.
* Thu Jan 28 2021 Michal Suchanek <>
  - Update to v28
    * Add Zstandard to the supported compression formats using libzstd
      (tests only - cannot be disabled in tests)

* Tue Jan 12 2021 Michal Suchanek <>
  - Update usr-lib-modprobe.patch to upstream submission (boo#1180821).
  - Require libxslt-tools for xsltproc and use local stylesheet.
    * no-stylesheet-download.patch
* Fri Nov 06 2020 Jan Engelhardt <>
  - Add usr-lib-modprobe.patch [boo#1092648]
* Fri Oct 16 2020 Ludwig Nussel <>
  - prepare usrmerge (boo#1029961)
* Tue Jul 07 2020 Jan Engelhardt <>
  - Drop old RPM constructs from the build recipe.
* Fri Jul 03 2020 Michal Suchanek <>
  - Drop kmod-compat (boo#1173353):
    The symlinks in kmod-compat are not obsolete. They are
    desirable for kernel module autoload. The "kernel.modprobe"
    sysctl references /sbin/modprobe, and changing it to
    "/usr/bin/kmod load" is not possible, because this sysctl
    specifies a single executable, not a command (so spaces will be
    treated as part of the filename).
* Wed May 27 2020 Jan Engelhardt <>
  - Update to release 27
    * Link to libcrypto rather than requiring openssl.
    * Use PKCS#7 instead of CMS for parsing module signature to be
      compatible with LibreSSL and OpenSSL < 1.1.0.
    * Teach modinfo to parse modules.builtin.modinfo. When using
      Linux kernel >= v5.2~rc1, it is possible to get module
      information from this new file.
* Tue Feb 12 2019 Michal Suchanek <>
  - Enable PKCS#7 signature parsing again - requires openssl
  - Fix testsuite build - requires kernel-default-devel
* Fri Feb 08 2019 Jan Engelhardt <>
  - Update to new upstream release 26
    * depmod now handles parallel invocations better by protecting
      the temporary files being used.
    * modprobe has a new --show-exports option. Under the hood,
      this reads the .symtab and .strtab sections rather than
      __versions so it shows useful data even if kernel is
      configured without modversions (CONFIG_MODVERSIONS).
    * modinfo supports PKCS#7 parsing by using openssl.
  - Replaced the asn1c-based parser by an openssl-based PKCS
  - Remove libkmod-signature-Fix-crash-when-module-signature-is.patch,
    (not accepted upstream)
  - Remove enum.patch,
    (accepted upstream)
* Fri Dec 07 2018 Michal Suchanek <>
  - Fix module dependency file corruption on parallel invocation (bsc#1118629).
  - Add depmod-Prevent-module-dependency-files-corruption-du.patch
  - Add depmod-Prevent-module-dependency-files-missing-durin.patch
  - Add depmod-shut-up-gcc-insufficinet-buffer-warning.patch
* Wed Jul 18 2018
  - Remove enum padding constants, add enum.patch (boo#1097869).
* Fri Jun 08 2018
  - allow 'modprobe -c' print the status of "allow_unsupported_modules" option.
    Add 0012-modprobe-print-unsupported-status.patch
* Fri Apr 06 2018
  - Fix crash when PKCS#7 signer name is not present in signature (bsc#1088244)
    Add libkmod-signature-pkcs-7-fix-crash-when-signer-info-.patch
* Fri Mar 16 2018
  - for sle, buildexclude the 32bit platforms in kmod-testsuite,
    they have no kernel binaries anyway (bnc#1085640)
* Thu Mar 08 2018
  - Fix PKCS#7 signature display in modinfo (bsc#1077693).
    * Add libkmod-signature-implement-pkcs7-parsing-with-asn1c.patch
    * Add libkmod-signature-Fix-crash-when-module-signature-is.patch
    * Refresh 0010-modprobe-Implement-allow-unsupported-modules.patch
* Thu Feb 01 2018
  - Update to kmod v25
    * Fix resolving symbols with MODULE_REL_CRCS (bsc#1077867)
