  this is my previous question about serial module from different
perspective, I hope somebody will have something to say (relevant:-)

  it looks like post install and pre-remove directives for serial module
are not working. I have following lines in /etc/modules.conf:

post-install serial /etc/init.d/setserial modload > /dev/null 2>
pre-remove serial /etc/init.d/setserial modsave  > /dev/null 2>

  /etc/setserial is a script, even when I redirected it to real file
(not /dev/null) there was no trace of it being executed. if I copy&paste
it to command line, it works ok (it saves/loads the configuration into

  any ideas how to debug this situation? everything looks normal (there
are no error messages) but it simply does not work (I see no effect of

  this is on debian unstable system (I haven't seen any setserial bug
