I am adding files to /etc/modprobe.d, and a README of some software that I'm installing advised to run update-modules afterwards.

$ sudo update-modules
-bash: update-modules: command not found

What is the equivalent of this program in CentOS 6.4? Or is update-modules deprecated? What is the new program called?

  • @Ketan, I don't have my Linux system right now. I am installing this software manually. It's not in any public repository. What does yum update have to do with the modules governed by modprobe?
