loading at startup: ndiswrapper. run at startup: ntpdate

Hi,

two problems:

  1. I did put “ndiswrapper” in etc/modules but it doesn’t load at boot. How do I mange that. I have to do a “modprobe ndiswrapper” all the time i boot.

  2. ntpd is not running with my provider, because the port is blocked. I have to do a “ntpdate -u pool.ntp.org” all the time.
    I made a script to run at startup but it doesn’t work, probably because it has to run as root!?

anybody can help?

1.)
YaST > System > /etc/sysconfig-editor
at the left open System > Kernel > MODULES_LOADED_ON_BOOT
add ndiswrapper and Finish

2.) The easiest way might be to add the code to /etc/init.d/boot.local

Hi
Try adding to “modules_loaded_on_boot” in /etc/sysconfig/kernel. You
can also do via YaST /etc/sysconfig editor, just search on the modules
string above.

Just configure ntp configuration via YaST and select some of the public
servers.

wow, i begin to love openSuse; Yast makes things so easy (coming from Kubuntu)

but, ntpd is not working for me; my Internetprovider blocked the port. But I found another thread here: date and time automaticly - openSUSE Forums

thank you
