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.
