modprobe.d question

Hi with later kernels 3.5 and later
is /etc/modprobe.d/ read ?
Can I still use it for preloading sound modules so I can determine the ALSA/ portaudio device numbers ?,
or does udev take priority ??



OS Fedora FC17 x86_64

if you want to determine device numbers I suggest you create an index system to handle that.

eg if you have usb portable devices consider this
Modify your /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf so it reads
options snd-usb-audio index=0

options snd-hda-intel model=5stack
options snd-hda-intel index=1

I have intel internal....change yours to suit the guilty
