Re: [SLE] Kernel upgrade and disappearing modules.dep
That was the one, setups everything and configs it so lilo and the sys are on
the same page. This is different from other distro - so it came out of the
blue for me and I think the same thing happened to Dave. SuSE should have an
HOWTO for this and cross index it about 70+ different ways - that way newbies
can't help but run into the guide.

Cheers. Curtis
