CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

discover-modprobe [-n] [-v]

Description

discover-modprobe loads kernel modules identified by discover. It will typically be invoked automatically at boot time.

Files

/etc/discover-modprobe.conf This configuration file defines the types of modules to load by default, and specific modules not to load.
/var/lib/discover/crash A crash file written and erased each time discover-modprobe attempts to load a module. If the file lingers, the computer is assumed to have crashed while loading that module, and the module name is added to discover-modprobe.conf as a module to skip in the future.
