How to insert at startup in FC 9?


Hi All,

I am using ndiswrapper to use wireless on my laptop running FC9. Each time I login I need to load the module manually. Could you tell me which file should I edit so that module can get inserted at start up automatically.

Thanks a lot.

You could put an entry in rc.local, but there must be a more standard way for ndiswrapper

I tried ndiswrapper -m as well. It created a file named ndiswrapper in /etc/modprobe.d/.
But still module is not getting inserted automatically at start up.
