Loading kernel modules
One of my boxes uses the eepro100 kernel module for its network
interface. As I migrate more from Red Hat based boxes, the more I like
Debian. But one thing that is really getting me is that this kernel
module is not getting loaded when the machine comes up.
At least in a RH based distro, I would typically have an entry like this
in my /etc/modules.conf:
alias eth0 eepro100
And that should do it. But even if I make that modification in Debian,
it gets blown away the next time it comes up. Therefore, networking
doesn't come up and being a headless box, that's not too handy.
Of course I can always recompile my kernel and build that kernel module
straight in, but I'm just curious what people normally do in this
Thanks in advance,
PS: Is there an equivalent to RH's /etc/rc.local in Debian?
