Re: Debian modules

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.

Interesting. It has been a few months since I installed a Sarge system. I don't recall how it worked with the systems I installed. However, I do know that there are dependencies by some modules on others. Also, are you running packages that will load their own modules? For example, I know shorewall will load a whole bunch of iptables modules when it runs. Beyond that, I am not certain. I would be interested to find out what is going on that is causing this.
