Description Harvey Stein 1999-03-07 09:00:10 UTC
I noticed after building kernel 2.2.2 that modules were
no longer autoloading.  I didn't notice with 2.2.0-pre9
(aka 2.2.0-final) because I inadvertently compiled in kmod,
and kmod seems to be fine.  In 2.2.2 I tried to use kerneld
(& didn't include kmod in the kernel) and modules wouldn't
autoload.  This might be a bug, or it might be because of
the module vs modutils clash which I reported separately.
I haven't tried cleaning it up & trying again yet.

kerneld doesn't work with 2.2 kernels.
If you want autoloading, use kmod,
