?Odd bug. modprobe.blacklist~ behaves as modprobe.blacklist
Is this a bug.
I edited /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.blacklist adding the line
I typed it wrong and entered
So there were a host of message on booting saying blaclist was not recognised.
I edited the file and rebooted and had a host of messages about blaclist in modprobe.blacklist~ not being recognised.
All sorted now but why is modprobe.blacklist~ being examined?
It's behaviour by design. man 5 modprobe.conf says:
All the files under the /etc/modprobe.d directory are used.
Then, those *~ files left behind by your editor will be used, too. File names in modprobe.d is just a convenience.
