    Adding genkernel modules to modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

    Hey everyone,
    I'm adding the modules from genkernel to modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6. I'm using the command:

    find /lib/modules/2.6.15-gentoo-r1/ -type f -iname '*.o' -or -iname '*.ko' >> /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6

    This will add all the modules to modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 but it's almost 1,000 lines in /path/modules.ko format. I really don't want to have to go through a thousand lines remoing the path and extension. Is there anyway to remove the path and extension using find or something else?

    I've compiled my own hardened kernel. I've got a lot of modules too. I'd like to add the necessary ones to autoload, but I have found very little documentation on kernel modules, the filenames themselves are not very descriptive, and just like you I'd like to find a way to add them without the path or extensions.

    If you leave any out, then by default udev will load any modules it thinks you need. I usually comment it out in the /etc/conf.d/rc file so that my network interfaces don't get started unless I want them to, and there is some hardware I don't really want activated.
