NAME

       modules.dep.bin, modules.depmodules.dep — Module dependency information

DESCRIPTION

       The  modules.dep.bin  as generated by module-init-tools depmod, lists the dependencies for
       every module in the directories under /lib/modules/version, where modules.dep.bin (or  the
       human  readable  version  modules.dep)  is  also  located. It is used by utilities such as
       modprobe. The binary version will be used by default, if it was generated by a  compatible
       version of depmod, with fallback to the generic modules.dep.

       These  files  are  not  intended  for  editing or use by any additional utilities as their
       format is subject to change in the future. You should use the modinfo(8) command to obtain
       information  about  modules  in a future proof and compatible fashion rather than touching
       these files.
