Bug Description

as reported by pitti under bug 450463, the cloud-images have the following in /etc/modules:
  | # LP: #450463
  | acpiphp

That is written by

The result is that the systemd-modules-load.service fails to load, and user sees messages like this on console (possibly other fallout).

| [[32m OK [0m] Started Nameserver information manager.
| resolvconf.service
| [ 4.808918] systemd[1]: systemd-modules-load.service: main process exited, code=exited, status=1/FAILURE
| [[1;31mFAILED[[ 4.810826] systemd[1]: Failed to start Load Kernel Modules.
| 0m] Failed to st[ 4.811754] systemd[1]: Unit systemd-modules-load.service entered failed state.
| art Load Kernel [ 4.812820] systemd[1]: systemd-modules-load.service failed.
| Modules.
| See "systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service" for details.

Ideally there would be a way to say "load this if it exists", or some other way that failed module loads could be marked as non-fatal.
That said, as Martin reports, the acpiphp module is no longer present in vivid (3.19.0-7-generic).

For reference:
 $ find /lib/modules -iname "*acpi*" -type f

$ find /lib/modules -iname "*acpi*" -type f

So we've been rid of acpiphp.ko since at least 14.04.

For vivid, this is actually added by, as we've moved to using livecd-rootfs to build on the buildds.

I've made the change, and the PPA we use for livecd-rootfs ( is building it as we speak.

Once that's built, the next vivid daily build should fix this.
