Difference between /etc/modules and /etc/modules.conf ?
 
I understand that both are for loading modules at boot-time, but why use those 2 files instead of just 1 ?
Is /etc/modules.conf Debian specific ?
I installed the alsa-base package and it automaticaly added a truckload of sound modules in the modules.conf file.
If I want to load the Nvidia forcedeth nertwork modules at boot-time, where should I specify that , in /etc/modules or /etc/modules.conf ?
The manual man update-modules specify that it is obsolete, so why is there any drivre name listad in the /etc/modules.conf . If it's obsolet, it should be blank or it shouldn't exist right ?
tia for any help.

Maybe checking out the man pages for these files will unveil some of the mystery?

Actually it's the perfect reply to the question. The thread should have ended there but you, me and juan are the ones that are wasting bandwidth
