Debian 'modconf' no longer working


What's wrong with 'modconf' in Debian unstable. It is no longer working.

This is what I get when try to load/unload ANY modules:

FATAL: Failed to open config file /etc/modprobe.conf: No such file or directory

Installation failed.

Please press ENTER when you are ready to continue.


The file '/etc/modprobe.conf' is nowhere to be found. Anyone has an answer for this problem? How do we suppose to load modules automatically during the boot time?

Do this as root:

Code:
touch /etc/modprobe.conf
It creates the file, and then everything is fine and dandy when you reboot.
