Trying to configure a wacom graphic tablet reading the arch wiki articles related to, i got a bit confused about this problem:
What’s the difference in function of
As far as i understand
/etc/modules-load.d is read by systemd to, e.g. , load or blacklist explicitely modules on boot.
/etc/modprobe.d is used to define options of modules loaded.
/etc/modprobe.d i have a file:
linux54-broadcom-wl.conf which contains this:
/etc/modules-load.d only contains an empty
Shouldn’t the blacklisted modules sit somewhere in
Thanks a lot in advance for any illumination!
As far as I can tell files in /etc/modprobe.d/ directory can be used to pass module settings to udev, which will use modprobe to manage the loading of the modules during system boot.
modulus-load.d contains a list of modules to load at boot hence the name.
If you look here seems that also
/etc/modprobe.d files do settings and blacklisting … pretty much like /etc/modules-load.d - which seems to be used by systemd … (?)
/etc/modules-load.d can only load modules, nothing more. You can’t blacklist a module and you can’t insert a module with special options.
/etc/modprobe.d you can blacklist a module, you can crate an alias for a modulename and you can add special options for modules.
/etc/modules-load.d can be used to insert a module at boot.
/etc/modprobe.d cab be used to blacklist or adds options.
