:? Does anybody know how to find out what modules are loaded with the
kernel? I believe ati radeon video drivers and intel i810 sound card
drivers are part of kernel 2.6. But I don't know if they were
automatically installed or not. Thank you -- Larry
and it will give to you the list of what modules are loaded.
to see which modules were compiled with the kernel, search it under:
(where 2.6.6 is your kernel version)
You can also read the /boot/kconfig26 file, it's your kernel's configuration file.
:? venox - lsmod gives me:
Module Size Used By
and nothing else.
/lib/modules/2.6.3 gives me about a 1000 different directions to go in,
and /boot says there is no such file as /kconfig, /kconfig26, or
I might just install xfree86 and kde and see what happens.
Thanks -- Larry
did you include the name of the modules you wan tot load in /etc/rc.conf's MODULES=() array?
# # Module to load at boot-up (in this order) # (prefix a module with a ! to disable it) # MODULES=(!usbserial !ide-scsi 8139too nvidia snd-cmipci snd-pcm-oss)

I am not your friend
:? I'm not sure I know the exact name of the modules? Last system I used genkernel an menu config. Can I just type in ati Radeon and Intel i810??? -- Larry
modprobe snd_intel8x0 modprobe snd_pcm_oss modprobe snd_ac97_codec
have also a look in the alsa docs and in the wiki
for ATI, the driver should load autmatically with X and is called radeon (at least for me with a "firegl 7800")
check with lsmod when in X
The impossible missions are the only ones which succeed.
If your new to linux, run xf86config (rather than editing the XF86Config file manually) and answer the questions you are asked concerning your video card, monitor, mouse and etc. You will want to do this WITHOUT X running. Boot to login prompt and login as root.

You can also use hwd package. It will try to detect your hardware and advise you several ways of loading detected modules. It will also generate XF86Config. Just pacman -Sy hwd (if you have staging repo in your /etc/pacman.conf) or download it from http://amlug.net/new-projects/hwd/hwd.html and add with pacman -A downloadedfilename and then run hwd as root and follow instructions (don't believe in everything it says though :-) if it will advise you some modules that do not exist try searching /usr/share/hwdata/upgradelist for new module names).
