    Add special hardware to the hardware detection on boot

    Hello,

    It is possible to add speciall interface card (NI PCI-GPIB) to the hardware detection routine ? The Linux driver for this card is available as loadable module.
    Where can I find more information about the configuration of the hardware detection used in KNOPPIX ?

    thx Danmak

    I've opted to do a HD install using the Knoppix-installer and chosen to make that a Debian style install. (see the significance later) I've been playing around with Kino which requires modules 'raw1394 and ohci1394 to be loaded, so Kino can control the i/f directly. What I did, was just add them to '/etc/init.d/bootmisc.sh' that is I added the following lines:-

    modprobe raw1394
    modprobe ohci1394

    Unfortunately, if you have a Knoppix style install, you won't find bootmisc.sh - all the clever stuff is done with this script (and probably others):-

    /etc/init.d/knoppix-autoconfig

    -It's rather complex, I got no further than commenting out a couple of lines to trick the script into enabling dma by default!!! You might recognise some of it running at boot time.....

    Stu.....

    PS. I'm a linux newbie, so I could be suggesting quite the wrong way to do things!!!

    To get the modules loaded on a hd install just add them to /etc/modules ..

    Check out my article on how to set up non-linear video editing on Debian/knoppix
