SubjectRe: [ALPHA RELEASE] module-init-tools 0.9-alpha
Date
I just built and installed 0.9-beta.  First it tried to install into 
/usr/local/sbin which is pretty useless here. Fix this with --prefix=
and tried again. This time it put things in /sbin as expected, but did
not rename the old files with a .old suffix. Should this still happen?
If not, what happened with backwards compat?

TIA
Ed Tomlinson
