System Initialization: Module Autoloading

The module autoloading process is one of the criticalservices, which startup during the early stages of system initialization. The module autoloader script /etc/init.d/modules automatically loads the modules defined in the modules.autoload configuration file.

/etc/modules.autoload

The /etc/modules.autoload file contains the names of modules that are to be loaded at system initialization time, one per line. Arguments can be given in the same line as the module name.

Lines beginning with a hash are treated as comments and are ignored.

/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

The /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 file contains the names of modules that are to be loaded at system initialization time, one per line. Arguments can be given in the same line as the module name.

Lines beginning with a hash are treated as comments and are ignored.
