Description Torsten Krah 2006-12-11 06:04:59 UTC
I want to blacklist a module with udev 103.
The way to do is to add a "blacklist <modulename>" to modprobe.conf.

Adding this to /etc/modules.d/slmodem perhaps does not work:

blacklist slamr

The try to gernerate the files using modules-update:

* Updating /etc/modules.conf ...                                         [ ok ] * Updating /etc/modprobe.conf ...
* Warning: could not generate /etc/modprobe.conf!                        [ !! ] * Updating /etc/modprobe.conf by hand ...                                [ ok ] * Updating modules.dep ...  

The blacklist line gets not in there but have to be there as its allowed in the module-init-tools, see "man modprobe.conf".
