According to an answer in Linux Format Aug 2013, the contents of /etc/modules specify which modules that should be loaded at boot time.
Mine, in Mageia 2 is empty! So where are they specified?
Hello all,Just updated to 3.7.5 and the above service fails on each boot.Not sure how/if it affects me, but worth noting (EDIT - OK, VirtualBox kernel module isn't loaded on boot for example).Here's the output of systemctl status systemd-modules-load.servicesystemd-modules-load.service - Load Kernel Modules
Loaded: loaded (/usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-modules-load.service; s
cat /etc/mkinitcpio.conf# vim:set ft=sh
# The following modules are loaded before any boot hooks are
# run. Advanced users may wish to specify all system modules
# in this array. For instance:
# MODULES="piix ide_disk reiserfs"
# This setting includes any additional binaries a given user may
# wish into the CPIO image.
I am going to guess that the OP does not have vfat in MODULES, and the booting kernel is not the same as the modules in /usr/lib.Edit: BTW, the list of modules in mkinitpcio.conf is not an array. It is just a quoted multi-word variable.
