Thread: modprobe at boot time

  1. modprobe at boot time


    after google'ing, i tried this:

    /etc/modprobe.conf
    alias vlan 8021q

    to accomplish this:
    modprobe 8021q

    at boot time. that didn't do it for me. i can tell, because the
    first time i set up a vlan, i get lots of extra messages that i
    don't get if i do a modprobe first. i have the modprobe in a
    startup script, and that works, of course, but i'm wondering
    if there's a better/right way?

    oh, sorry: RHEL 4.

    You can add this line to
    /etc/rc.local
    modprobe 8021q

    That should do it.

    Sorry, I should have included the path to modprobe:
    /sbin/modprobe 8021q
