Re: driver loaded automatically

Yes, the discover package. Now I see the discover package can be removed from my system and maybe can make my system boot up a little more quick.
I would like to know the details of the kernel's own detection mechanism. Do you know where can I find the documentation about it?
Thank for you reply.

The package discover? I don't even have it installed. The kernel has
it's own detection mechanisms and loads modules as needed. If you don't
want to load some of them you need to use a blacklist.

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
