Re: e1000 module not loaded at startup

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


It seems that rc.sysinit finds out which module to load using kmodule
commands output. But it that NETWORK e1000 doesn't get loaded as module:

Maybe defining e1000 explicitly (network="e1000" in rc.sysinit) solves the
problem which I can't risk since it is a remote system:

Below is a snippet from rc.sysinit

echo -n $"Initializing hardware... "

eval `kmodule | while read devtype mod ; do
        case "$devtype" in
                "IDE")  ide="$ide $mod"
                   echo "ide=\"$ide"\";;
                "SCSI") scsi="$scsi $mod"
                   echo "scsi=\"$scsi"\";;
                "NETWORK") network="$network $mod"
                   echo "network=\"$network"\";;
                "AUDIO") audio="$audio $mod"
                   echo "audio=\"$audio"\";;
                *) other="$other $mod"
                   echo "other=\"$other"\";;
