had to change




in order to get it to work. Maybe its because of pacman 4 (using testing)

makepkg fails at building:

==> ERROR: install file (('readme.install')) does not exist.

@maxr - this is a good idea. Done in 1.5-3. Any other common ones to suggest?

Maxr commented on 2011-11-04 07:23

Would like to suggest adding some popular modules (which have to be build seperately) to modprobed_db.conf: osscore oss_hdaudio oss_usb (open sound system) tp_smapi thinkpad_ec (tp_smapi from the aur)

@graysky -Thought you might like to see to see this little trick I figured out. You can use grep all by it's lonesome (well with a little help from sort) to diff the modules. Instead of this line:

cat /proc/modules | awk '{print $1}' | sort -k 1,1 | grep -Ev "`echo ${ignore[*]} | sed -e 's/^/^(/' -e 's/ /|/g' -e 's/$/)$/'`"

try this:

grep -Fvf <(echo "${ignore[*]}" | tr " " "\n") <(cut -d" " -f1 /proc/modules) | sort --parallel=2 (fastest)


grep -Fvf <(echo "${ignore[*]}" | tr " " "\n") <(gawk '{print$1}' /proc/modules) | sort --parallel=2 (slightly slower)

Let grep do all the hard work! Your lists don't even have to be sorted first for grep to diff them (see Note) that's why sort is at the end. Also, as sort is at the end of the list it will have already been filtered so sort runs faster now.

Just thought you might be interested in this!

Note: It's not really diffing them it's using your "ignore" variable as regex to find the inverse in /proc/modules.

I always run modprobed_db as root.

graysky commented on 2011-04-17 21:22

@misc - odd... post your /etc/modprobed_db.conf then post the output of:
ls -l /path/to/your/dbpath/from/that/file

For some reason my db file constantly gets deleted. Bit tough collecting data for a week this way…

@graysky - Still using your excellent tool to learn awk (and to make ck-kernels). I finally figured out how to do the whole ${db} creation in awk alone. Here it is if you interested:

Note: I'm using mawk so change to whichever awk version you use. This also hinges on the bash ${ignore[*]} variable being sourced as you have it.

mawk -v x="$(echo ${ignore[*]})" 'BEGIN { split(x,ignore," ")}; NR == FNR {for (i in ignore); if ($0 ~ i); print $1 | "sort"}' /proc/modules > ${db}
