<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
that it is usally a better idea to use the automatic
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
list of kernel modul names to load, seperated by
newlines. Empty lines and lines whose first
non-whitespace character is # or ; are ignored.</para>
