Where to get modconf?
Hi there!
I'm dealing with installing Linux on my old laptop at the moment. Since my distro (DeLi linux) is VERY beta at this time, it doesn't come with an advanced setup tool. So I searched on the web on how to install modules automatically so that they load at startup; everywhere I read of using modconf.
So I googled for modconf, but didn't find a download source of it.

Can somebody help me?

Looks like modconf is primarily used in Debian. But you can still install modules without this tool. Modprobe, depmod, insmod, rmmod are the tools you need in all linux OS's.

But how can I configure my linux that it loads the pcmcia and network modules at startup? I heard that after loading the needed modules with modprobe I have to run update-modules to load them automatically, but I do not have update-modules.

I haven't heard of an update-modules command to do that. But to load modules at startup you need to edit modules.conf or conf.modules and add them in there(depending on your system).

The distro I'm using is based on Slackware 7.1, which has a BSD style init and therefore, seems to manage the startup actions another way. But I don't know how...:confused:
