discover-modprobe.conf — configuration file for discover-modprobe(5)
discover-modprobe.conf is the configuration file for discover-modprobe,
which is responsible for retrieving and loading kernel modules.
This file is a shell script, and as such is subject to a string
variable assignment syntax. No space is allowed between the
variable name, the equal (=) sign, and the value(s) assigned. If
multiple values are to be assigned, the list must be space-
delimited with surrounding quotes.
Two directives can be used in this file: types and skip. Both can be
defined multiple times.
types This describes the classes of hardware that should be scanned
skip These modules should never be loaded. See the ``Files''
section for details on the mechanism for generating these
A crash file written and erased each time discover-modprobe
attempts to load a module. If the file lingers, the computer
is assumed to have crashed while loading that module, and the
module name is added to discover-modprobe.conf as a module to
skip in the future.
