modprobe WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.



Computer Configuration GNU Linux Fedora using Linux Command

 

   Today try to execute modprobe ip_nat_ftp command on terminal to configure our new install Fedora 12, but the error message from the modprobe command say that "WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/."... stuck there for a while.. do some search on the net and come out to the solutions that the modprobe.conf no logger need on Fedora 12, so we need to rename the modprobe.conf configuration file in order to make modprobe error message "WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/." disappear.  The step by step below show how to rename the modprobe.conf as the solution for the error above.

 

Error message from modprobe command

[root@fedora12 ~]# modprobe ip_nat_ftp

WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/.

[root@fedora12 ~]#

 

Solution for WARNING: Deprecated config file /etc/modprobe.conf, all config files belong into /etc/modprobe.d/. by rename the modprobe.conf file

[root@fedora12 ~]# mv /etc/modprobe.conf /etc/modprobe.conf.OLD

[root@fedora12 ~]#

 

Then execute the modeprobe command again

[root@fedora12 ~]# modprobe ip_nat_ftp

[root@fedora12 ~]#

 

You may require to reboot your fedora 12 system to apply the changes

I have the same problem on boot, for some days now. Console gives me the same warning, the only difference is that I don't even have a /etc/modprobe.conf file. Plus, boot time is increased by 30 seconds...
