how (linux kernel) network modules gets loaded without modprobe.conf I have fedora distribution installed and can see e1000e module loaded automatically in the system.
Is there a configuration which specifies to load this module automatically ??
I have referred modprobe.conf, BUT no such entry exists. for that matter, I have grep'd entire /etc/ directory to check any entry to load this module, but no avail.
Please let me know 1. whether any configuration file mention about loaded specific modules automatically during bootup time ? 2. If there is not config file, how the modules are picked up by the system?
