how to load dvb module at boot - modprobe.conf?
I'm trying to get my TV card drivers to install at boot.
I used to run a shell script manually everytime after a reboot, but it's annoying to have to do this.
Below is the script...
dingo:/home/steve # more tvsetup
modprobe -r saa7134
modprobe saa7134 card=70
The reason for removing the saa7134 module was that sometimes the card type was detected correcty, but sometimes detected as "generic".
After saa7134 is loaded correctly, saa7134-dvb must be loaded.
I have added the following to modprobe.conf.local:
alias saa7134-0 saa7134
alias saa7134-dvb0 saa7134-dvb
options saa7134-0 card=70
It seems the saa7134 module now loads with the correct card detected, but I still must modprobe saa7134-dvb manually.
The modprobe.conf man page is about as clear as mud.
Anyone have any idea how to use modprobe.conf to do all this automatically, or maybe someone might be able to tell me how to run the shell script at boot.
