[Solved] Video driver load order and selection

Post#1 by Kriss » 02 Nov 2015, 06:12

Hi all!
Some time ago I already posted in chat that video drivers are chosen on filename alone without regards to extension.
Not sure if it was noticed though, but it doesn't matter.
And another question is modules load order. It seems driver is loaded before "extramod=" so these modules can overwrite them.

Ok, I fixed this by editing linuxrc like this. (moved vga_detect below EXTRAMOD and added -name "*.xzm")
Here are resulting initrd.xz and initrd64.xz for those who interested.
Porteus 3.1
