modules are loading that shouldn't in my rc.modules
 
alright quick, hopefully easy question. i have kernel 2.6.5 and slackware-current. i've noticed that i'm getting modules loaded that aren't in my /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file and i have module autoloading disabled in my kernel. i'm guessing this is because 2.6.5 is using some other config file and 2.6 isn't supported by slack yet.....so can anyone tell me what config file my modules are loading from? i have a few that shoudln't be loaded (namely fglrx and agpgart since they aren't working with xf86 4.4). thanks for any help

Maybe the hotplugging is loading your modules. Try
Code:

chmod -x /etc/rc.d/rc.hotplug
Re-boot and see if your problem is solved.

If that fixes your problem, but you still want to use hotplugging, add the modules you don't want loaded to your hotplug blacklist and re-enable hotpluging.

" i've noticed that i'm getting modules loaded that aren't in my /etc/rc.d/rc.modules file"

They are probably being loaded by your initrd, if you are using an initrd.
