Hi Guys

I hope some one can help me with this problem , I have a dual boot WIndowsXP and Fedora Core6 , I have installed fuse and ntfsprogs to mount my NTFS partitions on Linux, all is fine and working except when I reboot I need to type

modprobe fuse

to load the module into the kernel , how can I do this automaticaly so when I boot its already loaded , please do not tell me a script or rc.local , I want to do it with /etc/modprobe.conf , I read the man page and tried

install fuse /sbin/modprobe

but still did not work

Please help correctly configure /etc/modprobe.conf , Thanks

Best Regards

I'm sure that FC6 has a 2.6 kernel. From my /etc/modprobe.conf file:
# /etc/modprobe.conf (old location for Linux 2.6+ config)
# The use of this config file is deprecated.
# Instead, create files in the /etc/modprobe.d/ directory
# containing modprobe options.
# For more information, see "man modprobe.conf".
Try that route, post what you did if it doesn't work; which means the
contents of the file you edited and your error message.
