    Another newbie with the same issue


    But, I did find the driver that nerdello pointed out, loaded it and followed all the directions only to be told that a line was missing in /etc/modules...

    so, I tried to edit and really did a job on it!!!! HELP... I need a fresh copy of /etc/modules...

    how can I rebuild it without reloading?

    /etc/modules is tuned to your system, AFAIK there is no "generic" file that will work.

    still hopefull

    Well, if the /etc/modules is specifically tuned to my system, what process creates it? Can't I just execute whatever that is and have it recreated?

    Sorry if this sounds terribly naive.

    off topic but,
    We use linux we dont like Generic :P We like Custom

    EDIT: @ rmachia when you comple your kernel the modules you add are added to /etc/modules thats why you cant just add them. You must rexompile your kernel to add them.
