       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

       types     This describes the classes of hardware that should be scanned and queried.

       skip      These modules should never be loaded. See the ``Files'' section for  details  on
                 the mechanism for generating these entries automatically.


                 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.
