Description Bastien Nocera 2003-12-19 20:14:43 EST
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
Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2004-01-05 06:17:27 EST
That doesn't actually work. The following lines should make it not
throw any warnings:
alias keybdev off
alias mousdev off
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2004-04-15 22:26:18 EDT
This is fixed with various initscripts changes since then, AFAIK.
