Description

discover-modprobe loads kernel modules identified by discover. It will typically be invoked automatically at boot time.

Echo the modprobe invocations instead of running them.
-v
Be verbose.

Files

/etc/discover-modprobe.conf
This configuration file defines the types of modules to load by default, and specific modules not to load.
/var/lib/discover/crash
