kerneld and udev

view story

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hi, at the moment i'm using udev for my custom distro, but it seems that udev is only loading device driver modules, and not other modules that provide filesystems ...etc i learned that kerneld was introduced around kernel 1.3.xx and that it has the responsibility of loading modules on demand. Is kerneld still used in modern linux kernels starting from 2.6.xx, or has it been decommissioned? How does udev relate to kerneld? if at all? How do modern linux distros load/unload modules on demand? via udev? kerneld? something else? cheers cheers (HowTos)
