I read in Michael Lewis's Absolute BSD that the best way to learn the system is to explore /etc/ so I decided to take a look at the files in /etc/ and see if I could find out where control of loading modules at boot time lies.

Code:
root@achilles:~# grep -Rl modprobe /etc/
/etc/modprobe.conf
/etc/rc.d/rc.inet1
/etc/rc.d/rc.modules-2.6.27.7-smp
/etc/rc.d/rc.nfsd

Waiting For Thirteen

Posted 08-25-2009 at 04:34 PM by brianL

Today is Boomtime, the 18th day of Bureaucracy in the YOLD 3175.
There's great expectations, nervous tension, and a large dose of silliness in the Slackware forum. All caused by the imminent arrival of Slackware 13.0.
I've been messing around with the two versions of current: 32 & 64 bit, trying to decide what to run when 13 materialises. Think I'm pretty sure now. I shall have 12.2 on my laptop (sharing the HDD with XP Pro), and 12.2 and the 64 bit 13 on my desktop. I'm keeping...
