    module loading problem

    I can't make some modules load at boot time.

    Here's my /etc/modules

    # /etc/modules: kernel modules to load at boot time.
    # This file should contain the names of kernel modules that are
    # to be loaded at boot time, one per line.  Comments begin with
    # a `#', and everything on the line after them are ignored.
    and here's my lsmod just after booting :

    nico@babasse:~$ lsmod

    I have to load manually :
    forcedeth to make internet work
    snd_intel8x0 to make sound work
    bttv to make my tv card work

    Pretty annoying huh ?

    Anybody may help ?

    here's my dmesg :

    I'm not sure if this will help, but after loading the modules manually, did you try running "update-modules" ?

    Just add those modules to /etc/init.d/

    modprobe forcedeth snd_intel8x0 bttv
    pump eth0

    (you may not need to use pump)

    I just happened across this by accident. Create a file /etc/modutils/actions w/ this:

    # Special actions that are needed for some modules

    # The BTTV module does not load the tuner module automatically,
    # so do that in here
    post-install bttv insmod tuner
    post-remove bttv rmmod tuner

    it worked !

    thanks a lot.

    I didn't need to create /etc/modutils/actions, the tuner module just loaded.
