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.
