I want to add nvidia module to load at startup. I've loaded it with modprobe command and it worked, but after rebooting it wasn't there, so i have to do it again and again after each startup. I wander where Linux stores all the information about modules to load. I've checked /etc/modprobe.conf, but there was only sound modules..
Red Hat have nice utility called ntsysv, but my current distro is Mandrake 10.1 (official). Can anyone help me? Thanks.
Finally it worked, ndidia module is loaded at the startup. And according to the comment in /etc/modprobe.preload: "this file is for module-init-tools (kernel 2.5 and above) ONLY for old kernel use /etc/modules". Next time i'll study all comments in configuration files more carefully. But i'm still curious where the other modules are stored, cause my etc/modprobe.preload have got only 2 modules (including nvidia).
Thanks for help guys!
