Today I built a completely module-free kernel, with the intention of
switching my system over to using absolutely no kernel modules. When I went
to uninstall module-init-tools, dpkg presented an error:
# dpkg --purge module-init-tools
dpkg: dependency problems prevent removal of module-init-tools:
linux-sound-base depends on module-init-tools (>= 3.2.1).
powermgmt-base depends on module-init-tools.
kernel-package depends on module-init-tools (>= 0.9.10).
alsa-base depends on module-init-tools (>= 3.2.1).
alsa-utils depends on module-init-tools.
oss-compat depends on module-init-tools | modutils | hurd; however:
Package module-init-tools is to be removed.
Package modutils is not installed.
Package hurd is not installed.
dpkg: error processing module-init-tools (--purge):
dependency problems - not removing
Errors were encountered while processing:
I was surprised to see that. Could you elaborate on this dependency? What
problems might occur without module-init-tools?
