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