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.
