We believe that your issue has been closed by the upload of
Version 0.9.36 of grml-live from Michael Prokop <>.
The explanation is attached below

Hash: SHA1

Format: 1.8
Date: Fri, 26 Feb 2010 21:32:25 +0100
Source: grml-live
Binary: grml-live grml-live-addons grml-live-db grml-live-buildd
Architecture: source all
Version: 0.9.36
Distribution: unstable
Urgency: low
Maintainer: Michael Prokop <>
Changed-By: Michael Prokop <>
 grml-live  - build system for creating a Grml (based) Linux live system
 grml-live-addons - templates/boot/addons for grml-live
 grml-live-buildd - autobuild daemon for grml-live
 grml-live-db - log package build information of grml-live to database
 grml-live (0.9.36) unstable; urgency=low
   * scripts/GRMLBASE/39-modprobe: Make sure all modprobe configuration
     files use .conf as filename suffix. [Closes: issue647]
   * Disable PDiffs by default via /etc/apt/apt.conf.d/20pdiffs.
   * 90-update-alternatives: check for symlinks of iceweasel and
     mount.ntfs-3g and force creation of /sbin/mount.ntfs symlink.
   * Rework addons handling (make sure to install boot addons independent
     from bsd4grml which might be disabled).
   * Updated boot manager teamplates (simplify syslinux.cfg,
     update failsafe bootoption, add GPXE to, drop duplicate
     boot=live from grub.cfg)
   * Do not bailout if reading dpkg.list fails, instead assume user
     is running a dirty build and display a warning message.
   * Check for precense of grub directory and files in templates
     that we are adjusting on-the-fly and skip non-existing ones
     so customisation of templates is easier.
   * Drop debug from bootoptions and use debug=vc only. 'debug' without
     arguments avoids displaying the executed code in the initramfs
     which is something you usually want to have enabled by default
     when debugging a system.
   * Fix label name for ssh bootoption.
   * Add persistency feature to boot menu. [Closes: issue773]
   * buildd/ make sure to use according filename in
     md5sum file of *_latest* ISOs. [Closes: issue814]
   * Software related changes:
     - Add grml-quickconfig to GRMLBASE.
     - Add grml-quickconfig-standard to GRML_* classes.
     - Add xz-utils to GRML_FULL.
     - Add zerofree to GRML_MEDIUM and GRML_FULL.
     - Drop 3ware-cli-binary (license unclear).
     - Drop rar from GRML_FULL (license).
     - Drop xlockmore from GRML_FULL (using vlock instead in grml-lock).
     - Move grml-docs from GRMLBASE to GRML_{SMALL,MEDIUM,FULL} to be
       able to customize it easier.

grml-medium and grml-small don't suffer from this problem. For the grml-full 
version of the upcoming 2009.05 release I've manually fixed ~5 files in /etc/
modprobe.d, so it affects the daily ISOs only nowadays. I'm leaving this 
bugreport open until all the packages have been fixed so people can see that we 
are aware of this issue.

msg2033 (view) Author: azhag Date: 2009-03-10.14:26:24

I resolved this issue on my iso with this one-liner:
> find $target/etc/modprobe.d -maxdepth 1 ! -type d ! -name ".conf$" -exec mv 
'{}' '{}'.conf ';'

in /etc/grml/fai/config/scripts/CLASS/.

This affects daily ISOs only so far, but JFTR so you're aware that I'm aware of 
it :) and due to the fact that this is a relase-stopper for us.
