re kmod
Thanks for that. I don't feel so "out there" now

Could you please add kmod to DISTRO_PKGS_SPECS for wheezy (all arches) and raspbian? Module-init-tools are dummy packages in those as well.

Hopefully busybox catches up soon, surely will.

pet_packages-quirky problems
Doing a racy woof2 set download on my development box.

However, I'm getting an awfull lot of error
404 Not Found
Remote file does not exist -- broken link!!!

and they all lead back to the quirky pet directory on a number of servers including ibiblio.

Maybe it's either corrupted or died.

However i'm not on a machine I can play with at present to try directly.

re kmod2
Unfortunately, that is something else with the same name.

re kmods2 and kmod
Blast, I wish they wouldn't do that, but we are in a free world.

Can you give me a url for your kmod then please.

I'm starting to get my head a little deeper into it all for an wierd idea I have had and I want to 'cook-it-up' a little bit before I ask for developer thoughts and programmer help.

thanks for that, I did wonder, but now i'm confused, I thought we were trying to keep away from systemd linked stuff?

Re kmod
Kmod has got nothing to do with systemd.
