Description Jeff Mitchell 2007-06-09 06:31:58 UTC
"man modprobe.conf" lists blacklist as a valid directive.  However, having any file in /etc/modules.d with "blacklist [modulename]" in it causes update-modules to error saying it couldn't create modprobe.conf:

modprobe: Invalid line 143 in /etc/modules.conf
Failed to to run modprobe. Giving up.
 * Warning: could not generate /etc/modprobe.conf!     

Not sure what's going on here.

Using sys-apps/module-init-tools-3.2.2-r3.

Reopen if you still have this problem after you've moved your blacklisting stuff to /etc/modprobe.d/

I didn't initially have a /etc/modprobe.d but after creating it and putting blacklist stuff in there it does work correctly.
