Autoload Modules with Parameters

I would like to load the module 'ibm-acpi' with the flag experimental=1.  From the command-line I can simply:

modprobe ibm-acpi experimental=1

However, is it possible to have this module installed on boot with the flag set?  Can I do this from the MODULES=() block in /etc/rc.conf?

Thank you!

Re: Autoload Modules with Parameters

You do this kind of stuff in /etc/modprobe.conf. Have a look a the man page - you need an 'options' line.

Re: Autoload Modules with Parameters

i know that "-f nvidia" works so maybe "-f nvidia option=1" would work too. If not, should be easy to modify the initscript to make it work? yeah, i think it wil work out of the box.

this is in MODULES=() in rc.conf
