Re: How does Debian load the kernel modules

If it does, in which way? With the kernel module loader or with a
I find that there is /etc/modules, but it list only a few modules.
lsmod shows me many more.
So I wonder how the other modules is loaded?
There are hardware detection packages like discover, hotplug (sarge
only) and udev (incorporating hotplug in etch/sid) that detect the
hardware and load the appropriate modules on boot. /etc/modules is
there for the things these don't detect, although in theory you could
right udev rules for them in most cases.
lsmod shows me many modules, and some of them aren't used.
So how to prevent them being loaded?
These modules aren't listed in /etc/modules
