I have both 32 and 64 bit fedora 12 on different partitions,

The 32 bit version whines about /etc/modprobe.conf existing
at several points during the boot, and there is indeed
a totally empty /etc/modprobe.conf file on the system.

If I try to find out where it came from, I get this:

[root@zooty /]# rpm -q -f /etc/modprobe.conf
file /etc/modprobe.conf is not owned by any package

So some 32 bit package I installed created this
file, but won't own up to it :-).

I supposed it wouldn't hurt anything to delete it
since it is empty?

/etc/modprob.conf is not owned by an RPM as it's not distributed as
part of an RPM.  It is created during installation by a script.

Can you remove it?  Yes.  I'd be curious to know what's whining.
