Package: open-vm-tools
Version: 2009.02.18-148847-2
Severity: normal

Hi,

when starting the open-vm-tools the following messages occur:

sid:/etc/modprobe.d# /etc/init.d/open-vm-tools start
Loading open-vm-tools modules: vmhgfs
WARNING: All config files need .conf:
/etc/modprobe.d/display_class, it will be ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist, it will be
/ ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/pnp-hotplug, it will
/ be ignored in a future release.
WARNING: All config files need .conf: /etc/modprobe.d/vmxnet, it will be
/ ignored in a future release.

One of the files in /etc/modprobe.d is provided by your package: vmxnet.
I'm not sure if the file is needed at all as there is open-vm-tools.conf
being identical to this file.

Thanks,
Hilmar

since open-vm-tools is using dh_installmodules since the last revision,
it will automatically use the new .conf name when it gets rebuild the
next time.

it is almost. the remaining one is that the dh sniplet doesn't take the
vmxnet -> open-vm-tools conffile renaming into account.
