How to load modules on boot in Fedora 18?
Hi everybody,

I'd like to load a certain module during boot process and iirc that'd be done by /etc/modprobe.conf. Now, that doesn't exist anymore so I guess it has been replaced by some other mechanism. Anybody can help me out?

Thx in advance!

Fedora has been using systemd for, IIRC, the last two releases. Look at man systemd-modules-load and the directory set-up to which that manual file will point you.

Aaah, thank you! Though using Fedora since v16 I wasn't familiar with systemd yet, just because there was no need to deal with it until now :-)

So just in case anybody running into the same problem: If you want to run UT 2004 on Fedora 18 and experience there is no sound, it's because the snd-pcm-oss module is not loaded. So instead of doing

# modprobe snd-pcm-oss
each time before you want to play, you can create a file named like e.g. "ut2004.conf" in /etc/modules-load.d and put in the modules you want to be loaded at boot time, in this case "snd-pcm-oss" (without the quotes).

Thanks again!
