The Kmod package contains programs for loading, inserting and removing kernel modules for Linux. Kmod replaces the Module-Init-tools package.

./configure --prefix=/tools --bindir=/bin \
    --build=${CLFS_HOST} --host=${CLFS_TARGET}

ln -sv ../bin/kmod ${CLFS}/sbin/depmod
ln -sv ../bin/kmod ${CLFS}/sbin/insmod
ln -sv ../bin/kmod ${CLFS}/sbin/modprobe
