@merlock - The reboot logic is the ExecStop= line should be allowing the call when the service is stopped.

v2.44 fixed it.

Note that I did a drop-in override to change the interval from 6h to 1h. Is that going to have an effect the 'on reboot' logic?

@merlock - Thanks for pointing it out/not by design. Should be fixed in v2.44. Please try it.

Noticed that v2.43 doesn't seem to set up a persistent timer.

n/a n/a Sun 2020-07-05 09:38:49 EDT 1s ago modprobed-db.timer modprobed-db.service

Is this now by design?

Ahh, look over once more, the magic happens here:

"sort -k 1,1 "$DB" /tmp/.inmem | uniq > /tmp/.potential_new_db"

Missed it the first time and focused a bit too much on "cp /tmp/.potential_new_db "$DB"" :)

@bugsmanagement - It does not overwrite. Try the experiment: load your module, update, rmmod, update. It's still there.

Forgive me for my lack of understanding, but looking over your script, it appears to me that it overwrites than updates the database? What I worry about, ie, I connect to my VPN provider, which accordingly loads the tun module, modprobed-db updates the database. Coincidentally after reboot, tun module is not loaded, modprobed-db then polls, see no tun module, and overwrites the database omitting the tun module?

Ha, no entry for flavor so but it does show you example usage.

--> The system service and timer have been deprecated in favor of user flavors.
--> See the manpage of modprobed for details.
Manual of modprobed-db (8) doesn't have any entry for 'flavors'.

@Th3voic3 : I noticed the same issue first time I build kernel with the new version of modprobed. With no changes second time worked fine and it is still ok, thus I didn't report it. Try maybe a logout and login and see if without changes this behaviour persists.
