modules.dep man page
modules.dep, modules.dep.bin — Module dependency information
modules.dep.bin is a binary file generated by
depmod listing the dependencies for every module in the directories under
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.
