Re: Debian modules

I don't get it. As far as I know, the only way that Debian autodetects
hardware is either through hotplug or discover. If you are not running
those, then I don't know how they are getting autoloaded. Did they get
autodetected during the install? If so, and you are not running some
other hardware autodetection mechanism, they may just be listed in
/etc/modules. If that is the case, you can remove or comment out the
lines for the modules you no longer want loaded.
The modules are detected and loaded by the installer during
installation. After the initial reboot I login and remove all
unnecessary packages (nfs, lpr, etc., including hotplug). I then set
the modules I want loaded into /etc/modules (only 2, sd_mod and e100).
I then reboot and 30+ modules are loaded, crazy ones like sound, etc.
