NAME

       modules.dep, modules.dep.bin - Module dependency information

SYNOPSIS

       /lib/modules/modules.dep

       /lib/modules/modules.dep.bin

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.
