NAME
       modules-load.d - Configure kernel modules to load at boot

SYNOPSIS
       /etc/modules-load.d/*.conf

       /run/modules-load.d/*.conf

       /usr/lib/modules-load.d/*.conf

DESCRIPTION
       systemd-modules-load.service(8) reads files from the above directories
       which contain kernel modules to load during boot in a static list. Each
       configuration file is named in the style of
       /etc/modules-load.d/program.conf. Note that it is usually a better idea
       to rely on the automatic module loading by PCI IDs, USB IDs, DMI IDs or
       similar triggers encoded in the kernel modules themselves instead of
       static configuration like this. In fact, most modern kernel modules are
       prepared for automatic loading already.

CONFIGURATION FORMAT
       The configuration files should simply contain a list of kernel module
       names to load, separated by newlines. Empty lines and lines whose first
       non-whitespace character is # or ; are ignored.

       Each configuration file shall be named in the style of program.conf.
       Files in /etc/ override files with the same name in /usr/lib/ and
       /run/. Files in /run/ override files with the same name in /usr/lib/.
       Packages should install their configuration files in /usr/lib/, files
       in /etc/ are reserved for the local administrator, who may use this
       logic to override the configuration files installed from vendor
       packages.

       If the administrator wants to disable a configuration file supplied by
       the vendor, the recommended way is to place a symlink to /dev/null in
       /etc/modules-load.d/ bearing the same filename.

EXAMPLE
       Example 1. /etc/modules-load.d/virtio-net.conf example:

           # Load virtio-net.ko at boot
           virtio-net
