NAME

       modconf - a module configuration utility

SYNOPSIS

       modconf  [--source  [floppy|mounted]]  [--target destination] [--libdir
       path]  [--restrict-section   section]*   [--exclude-section   section]*
       [--load-before module]* [--load-only module]* [--load-after module]*

DESCRIPTION

       modconf  is  a script for installing kernel modules on Linux. It can be
       used interactively (GUI mode) or from the command-line (batch mode).

OPTIONS

       The options marked with a "*" below are applied only to one module.  If
       you  want  to apply them to more than one module then repeat the option
       in the command line.

       --source floppy|mounted
              Indicates where the modules are to be obtained from.  floppy  is
              used   when  installing  Linux.   mounted  is  used  on  already
              installed Linux systems. This is the default.

       --target directory
              specifies where the etc/modules and etc/modules.conf are  to  be
              found on the system (default: / ). Do not include a trailing "/"
              after the directory name.

       --libdir path
              Indicates where the eval and descr.gz files are to be  found  on
              the  system  (default:  /usr/share/modconf).   Do  not include a
              trailing "/" after the directory name.

       --restrict-section section*
              restricts modconf to only work with  the  specified  section  of
              /lib/modules

       --exclude-section section*
              force  modconf  to  not  work  with  the  specified  section  of
              /lib/modules

              Available sections at the time of this writing are: block  cdrom
              fs  ipv4  ipv6  misc  net  scsi (there may be others if you have
              installed packages with special modules, like pcmcia-modules).

       --load-before module*
              indicates a module that will be inserted  before any others.

       --load-only module*
              specifies a module to be inserted after all those indicated with
              the --load-before option. Disables interactive mode.

       --load-after module*
              specifies a module to be inserted after all those indicated with
              the --load-before option.
              This option is overridden by the previous one.

EXAMPLES

       Examples below are untested

       modconf  --load-only   plip   --load-before   ip_masq_ftp   --load-only
       appletalk

       Inserts modules "ip_masq_ftp", "plip" and "appletalk", in  that  order,
       and
              does not run the interactive program.
