Subject: Support for /usr/local/lib/modprobe.d

Message-ID: <> (raw)


We are working with a project that ships a blacklist file [1] that is
supposed to be installed to modprobe.d directory but it is not clear
what the default installation path should be.

Distros will typically install modprobe config files to
/lib/modprobe.d but it is common to use /usr/local as the default
prefix [2] for manual `make` invocations. The manual page [3] does not
list /usr/local/lib/modprobe.d as a supported location though.

In the past module-init-tools added [4] support for that path but that
repo appears to be abandoned and it does not look like kmod supports
it [5].

1. Am I missing something, or was this an omission when porting
modprobe to kmod?
2. Could the support be added?
3. Should we default to /lib or /etc for manual `make` invocations for
