systemd-modules-load.service, systemd-modules-load - Load kernel modules at boot SYNOPSIS
systemd-modules-load.service /lib/systemd/systemd-modules-load DESCRIPTION
systemd-modules-load.service is an early boot service that loads kernel modules based on static configuration. See modules-load.d(5) for information about the configuration of this service. KERNEL COMMAND LINE
systemd-modules-load.service understands the following kernel command line parameters: modules_load=, rd.modules_load= Takes a comma-separated list of kernel modules to statically load during early boot. The option prefixed with "rd." is read by the initial RAM disk only. SEE ALSO

modules-load.d - Configure kernel modules to load at boot SYNOPSIS
/etc/modules-load.d/*.conf /run/modules-load.d/*.conf /usr/lib/modules-load.d/*.conf DESCRIPTION
systemd-modules-load.service(8) reads files from the above directories which contain kernel modules to load during boot in a static list. Each configuration file is named in the style of /etc/modules-load.d/program.conf. Note that it is usually a better idea to rely on the automatic module loading by PCI IDs, USB IDs, DMI IDs or similar triggers encoded in the kernel modules themselves instead of static configuration like this. In fact, most modern kernel modules are prepared for automatic loading already. CONFIGURATION FORMAT
The configuration files should simply contain a list of kernel module names to load, separated by newlines. Empty lines and lines whose first non-whitespace character is # or ; are ignored. Each configuration file shall be named in the style of program.conf. Files in /etc/ override files with the same name in /usr/lib/ and /run/. Files in /run/ override files with the same name in /usr/lib/. Packages should install their configuration files in /usr/lib/, files in /etc/ are reserved for the local administrator, who may use this logic to override the configuration files installed from vendor packages. If the administrator wants to disable a configuration file supplied by the vendor, the recommended way is to place a symlink to /dev/null in /etc/modules-load.d/ bearing the same filename. EXAMPLE
Example 1. /etc/modules-load.d/virtio-net.conf example: # Load virtio-net.ko at boot virtio-net SEE ALSO
