systemd-modules-load.service, systemd-modules-load — Load kernel modules at boot





systemd-modules-load.service is an early boot service that loads kernel modules. It reads static configuration from files in /usr/ and /etc/, but also runtime configuration from /run/ and the kernel command line (see below).

See modules-load.d(5) for information about the configuration format of this service and paths where configuration files can be created.

Kernel Command Line

systemd-modules-load.service understands the following kernel command line parameters:

modules_load=, rd.modules_load=

Takes a comma-separated list of kernel modules to statically load during early boot. The option prefixed with "rd." is read in the initrd only.

Added in version 187.
