So there's lots of verbage out there on how to start one's modules on boot, but for some reason I have a couple I want to stop from loading, and I can't find out how.
I am trying to get alsa working, and it does if I kill my oss module. I have turned off oss in my 2.6 kernel and recompiled it, but still, these modules are loading. They don't show up in /etc/modules or /etc/modules.conf
Is there a command I can run like gentoo's modules-update when I have my modules the way I want them that will update some file, or is it ok for me to delete these modules in order to stop them from loading? I'll never need them again...
I guess I'll just delete my oss soundcard module. Gentoo has a command that really solves this problem, and I'm sure there has to be one for debian also, but, as always, knowing the command is the problem.
