    How to make driver's settings persist across reboots


    Hi,
    I'm modifying a network device driver code, so that a user can change the driver's settings thru ioctls. However, I don't know how to ensure that the user's changes persist across reboot. - I mean when the user makes changes where to store them so that they can be read by the kernel at startup time.
    Any help in this regard would be apprecaited.

    You can make your changes in /etc/modprobe.conf. man modprobe.conf for more info.

    The driver I'm modifying is compiled into the kernel and not as a module.
    Please could you be more specific in explaining how modprobe would help.
    Thx.
