Too much module loaded [solved]

Hello!

I try to install archlinux 0.7.2 on my girlfriend computer.
This is a HP P III 1000mhz.
Here some info:

HARDWARE DETECT ver 4.8.2 (simple mode)
  Kernel     : 2.6.16-ARCH
  CPU & Cache: Processor 0 is Pentium III (Coppermine) 996MHz, 256 KB Cache

  X sample   : Generate X sample: hwd -x
  Howto      : View howto: hwd -h

I use autoload for the first time. On my own computer, I have a custom kernel and I load mannually the need modules.

On this pc, when I check the module, a lot of them are not needed.
Here the lsmod, sorry this is huge!

Am I doing something wrong?
Must I blacklist all this modules?  :shock:

Thank you for your help

Re: Too much module loaded [solved]

Check your kernel .config.Make more of modules to be loadable not included in the kernel or if you are sure i will never use them simply disabled it:)

Re: Too much module loaded [solved]

Insane-boy , i think Shaika-Dzari is using a stock kernel with initrd on the P3 pc.

Shaika-Dzari, if that's the case, you can reduce the number of modules by tweaking initrd.
wiki entry for Initrd


Disliking systemd intensely, but not satisfied with alternatives so focusing on taming systemd.


(A works at time B)  && (time C > time B ) ≠  (A works at time C)
