                <title>Description</title>

		<para><command>systemd</command> uses
		<filename>/etc/modules-load.d/</filename> to configure
		kernel modules to load during boot in a static list.
		Each configuration file is named in the style of
		<filename>/etc/modules-load.d/&lt;program&gt;.conf</filename>. Note
60
		that it is usually a better idea to use the automatic
61 62 63 64 65 66 67 68 69 70
		module loading by PCI ID, by DMI ID or similar
		triggers configured in the kernel modules themselves
		instead of relying on static configuration like
		this.</para>
        </refsect1>

        <refsect1>
		<title>Configuration Format</title>

		<para>The configuration files should simply contain a
71
		list of kernel module names to load, separated by
72 73 74 75 76 77 78 79 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95
		newlines. Empty lines and lines whose first
		non-whitespace character is # or ; are ignored.</para>
