extra modules for 6.8.0 kernel

Asked by henk de hopper

on the newest lts 24.04 i can't install the meta package. linux-modules-extra-raspi which is talked about a lot in a bug i am experiencing with trying to get iscsi too work. installing that should fix it. but the linux-raspi package doesn't seem too contain a extra module. is this package deprecated/unneeded and should i look somewhere else or is this something that is still being worked on?

Since the 6.7.0 version of the kernel packages, there is no linux-modules-extra package any more and everything has been combined into the linux-modules package.
see Bug #2048862

compare the sizes:
linux-modules-6.5.0-1020-raspi_6.5.0-1020.23_arm64.deb (56.8 MiB)
linux-modules-extra-6.5.0-1020-raspi_6.5.0-1020.23_arm64.deb (27.3 MiB)
linux-modules-6.8.0-1007-raspi_6.8.0-1007.7_arm64.deb (87.1 MiB)
That's approximately the sum of the two
