avoid mousedev/keybdev load error on startup with a 2.6 kernel
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:41:04 EDT
When starting a 2.6 kernel, the errors about the load of the keybdev
and mousedev modules is annoying:
Adding those lines to /etc/modprobe.conf.dist avoids the problem,
while leaving the 2.4 setup intact.
alias keybdev /bin/true
alias mousdev /bin/true
That doesn't actually work. The following lines should make it not
throw any warnings:
alias keybdev off
alias mousdev off
This is fixed with various initscripts changes since then, AFAIK.
