Loading Modules


Hello,

I have recently compiled and booted the 2.6.11.5 kernel using SuSE 9.0.
I cannot figure out how to load the modules that were selected in .config of the kernel build.

I'm not sure if they are correct, but I've tried a few things: depmod; mkinitrd (did not load modules because modules.dep was not up to date).

modprobe modulename

mkinitrd creates an initial ramdisk

There are quite a few modules to be loaded. I did not want to have to add them all individually.

I understand that mkinitrd makes an initial ramdisk, that's why I tried to make one, but modules.dep is not up to date so it can't include the modules.

Modules for devices will be loaded by the kernel once they've been identified. If you want to autoload modules, you can put them in /etc/modules.conf (or modprobe.conf depending on kernel version).

Do man modprobe
