Upon boot, many strange and useless modules are loaded
I have a simple Gateway consumer-grade machine with an i810e motherboard,
866MHz/128MB/120MB ide. I am running 2.4.21-2-686. Using grub to boot my old
2.4.20 does not help.
I had left the machine running for a few weeks, when I needed to shut it down.
After rebooting, my USB mouse is frozen upon reaching the KDM login screen.
After a little poking around, I found that all sorts of oddball modules (for
which I don't have the hardware. serverworks?) had been loaded. After
manually rmmod-ing them, my mouse unfroze and all was happy.
My recurring problem is that all of the modules that I rmmod-ed re-appear
upon a reboot. I haven't had time to troubleshoot this all week, so I've been
limping along by running this script, which will result in my being able to
use my mouse.
