bootup tries to insmod i810 modules: i don't want it to do so (it fails anyway)


i'm guessing this has something to do with hotplug, but anyway, whenever i bootup slack, it tries to insmod i810.something and then tells me it fails probably due to invalid irq parameters or whatnot

but this is my soundcard, and i use alsa, so i don't need that insmodding going on (it does it about 10 times before giving up)

how can i get slack to stop doing this without turning off hotplug?

Most probably by commenting corresponding line in /etc/rc.d/rc.modules (i.e. line that contains "i810.something").

nothing is in my rc.modules for i810, or 810, not in my rc.hotplug either

at bootup it does say trying to do insmod, so it should be a modules trying to be loaded, but where is the darn file to stop it from trying to insmod at bootup?

You can add the module to /etc/hotplug/blacklist . Hotplug will not load the modules listed in that file.
