modules-load.d — Configure kernel modules to load at boot
reads files from the above directories which contain
kernel modules to load during boot in a static list.
Each configuration file is named in the style of
that it is usually a better idea to rely on the
automatic module loading by PCI IDs, USB IDs, DMI IDs
or similar triggers encoded in the kernel modules
themselves instead of static configuration like
this. In fact, most modern kernel modules are prepared
for automatic loading already.
The configuration files should simply contain a list of kernel module names to load, separated by newlines. Empty lines and lines whose first non-whitespace character is # or ; are ignored.
Each configuration file shall be named in the
/etc/ override files
with the same name in
/run/. Files in
/run/ override files with the
same name in
should install their configuration files in
/usr/lib/, files in
/etc/ are reserved for the local
administrator, who may use this logic to override the
configuration files installed from vendor
If the administrator wants to disable a
configuration file supplied by the vendor the
recommended way is to place a symlink to
/etc/modules-load.d/ bearing the
same file name.
