Debian GNU/Linux FAQ

9.4 What special provisions does Debian provide to deal with modules?

Debian's modconf package provides a shell script (/usr/sbin/modconf) which can be used to customize the configuration of modules. This script presents a menu-based interface, prompting the user for particulars on the loadable device drivers in his system. The responses are used to customize the file /etc/modules.conf (which lists aliases, and other arguments that must be used in conjunction with various modules) through files in /etc/modutils/, and /etc/modules (which lists the modules that must be loaded at boot time).

Like the (new) Configure.help files that are now available to support the construction of custom kernels, the modconf package comes with a series of help files (in /usr/lib/modules_help/) which provide detailed information on appropriate arguments for each of the modules.
