  1. Bug#445688: Bug cause identified

    By combining the error messages I get and looking at the initramdisk runs,
    I have found the problem is that the scripts call modpobe -Qb, with a capital
    q instead of a small q. Modprobe doesn't recognise this, so doesn't load the
    modules.

    can you please tell which boot script does this?

    max@dual:~/src/initramfs-tools$ egrep modprobe -r scripts/ | egrep Q |
    wc -l

    0

    yes modprobe -Q is an ultra silent ubuntu extension
    and has never been submitted upstream.
    anyway newer modprobe sets early in init MODPROBE_OPTIONS,
    so there shouldn't be the need to specify them anywhere else.

    regards
