Permently loading modules
Hi Everyone,

I have received some great help here. Hope I can once again. I am trying to capture video and thought I was successful when I was finally able to install kino. Running dvgrab was successful in capturing from the console. But, I must have somehow only temporarily loaded the 1394 module in my FC4 kernel (2.6.11) because after rebooting I am getting the same error message I did before when attempting to run dvgrab, namely:

raw1394: error no such file or directory. I have a /dev/raw/raw1394 file when was recently compiled and installed.

Can anyone tell me how to permently load the 1394 module into the kernel, or what else might be wrong? In the preference in kino, it says that the 1394 module is not recognized.

Any help very much appreciated.

You can add the command to /etc/rc.d/rc.local to load the module at boot. I would take a look at man modprobe

Also, most distributions have an /etc/modules.autoload, /etc/modules.autoload.d/, or some similar file/directory that contains a list of modules to be loaded at boot.
