failed to start load kernel modules

failed to start load kernel modules see 'systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service' for details'

Purely cosmetic boot error, but drives me insane waiting for non existing bug fix! Can anyone help?

Did you run

systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service

just to see what it says.

An inplace upgrade helped, mad props for SUSE’s installer auto detecting & importing from previous install. I’m hoping few other niggles will’ve cleared up as I rebuild my system.

Fresh install me thinks, so much for rolling, maybe I’m doing it wrong? Certainly no expert…

I do an occasional fresh install (maybe after around 1 year).

I also occasionally use Yast Software Management, and select the “Package Groups” view. Then I look at “Orphaned packages” and try to clean them up. But there’s nothing like a fresh install to clean out accumulated debris.
