Description Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams 2005-01-03 01:20:36 EST
When choosing to load modules at boot time, an admin is required to
edit /etc/rc.sysinit instead of a more suitable file such as
/etc/sysconfig/modules. The sheer complexity of rc.sysinit is high
enough that this file should never be edited, yet this is the most
appropriate place to indicate which modules to load at boot time under
the current structure.
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2005-01-03 01:31:35 EST
In /etc/rc.sysinit:

# Load modules (for backward compatibility with VARs)
if [ -f /etc/rc.modules ]; then
