NAME

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

SYNOPSIS

       /lib/modules/modules.dep

       /lib/modules/modules.dep.bin

DESCRIPTION

       modules.dep.bin is a binary file generated by depmod listing the dependencies for every
       module in the directories under /lib/modules/version. It is used by kmod tools such as
       modprobe and libkmod.

       Its text counterpar is located in the same directory with the name modules.dep. The text
       version is maintained only for easy of reading by humans and is in no way used by any kmod
       tool.

       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.
