Hmm, I'd expect dracut to depend on virtual/modutils-0 then but dracut-017-r3 sure doesn't seem to: equery d kmod sys-kernel/dracut-017-r3 (>sys-apps/kmod-5[tools]) Wait, I looked at the ebuild and it depends on either module-init-tools or kmod so that's why. So it looks like just udev-182-r2 depends upon it. Sorry for the misinformation. Todd
