Thread: How to load a device driver in Suse?

    Default How to load a device driver in Suse?

    Hello

    I have installed a device driver and the supplied script to load the device driver doesn't work. I think that I only need to load two modules. ie I need a startup file with:
    modprobe module1
    modprobe module2

    Does that sound correct? Where would I save this file on Suse?

    Hi
    You can use YaST->System->/etc/sysconfig editor. The search for
    modules_loaded_on_boot. Highlight and goto. Then add your modules

    Thanks Malcolm.

    Do you know what files the sysconfig editor creates?

    Hi
    In that case it's the file /etc/sysconfig/kernel

    Note:

    If the modules are really dependent (module2 depends on module1), then modprobe will load module1 automatically on "modprobe module2".
