No kmod on my system. Looks like collisions between the two packages. c2stable ~ # eix -I kmod No matches found. c2stable ~ # To me it looks safe to emerge -C kmod and then emerge module-init-tools if you want to go that way. I'd do an equery files kmod and carefully study what you're getting with that package, or else push a bug request up to that package maintainer for providing a modprobe that's not 100% compatible.
