Where is the script that loads up all of my other modules...


I'm running Slackware 12.2 with kernel 2.6.27.7-smp. I've been through each and every script in /etc/rc.d. What script do I need to look at that loads all of the other modules like ethernet adapter, wireless adapter, uvcvideo, video card, etc. Is there a script, where I can see what gets loaded, instead of looking at lsmod after bootup is over?

I'm using Xfce 4.4.3, so maybe xfce also has it's own script that loads modules, where could I find that?

grep modprobe /etc/init.d/* returns quite a few scripts, I think those are the ones you want.

Nothing got returned. There's nothing in /etc/init.d or /etc/rc.d/init.d, there's just a functions script about pids. Also the /etc/rc.d/rc4.d is empty.

That's odd. Isn't 4 the graphical runlevel for Slackware? Are you sure your system uses init and not upstart?

Yeah 4 is the multi user gui runlevel. I'm using xfce 4.4.3, a relatively lightweight desktop. I don't think it uses upstart.
