How to remove unneeded modules
« on: Thu Dec 29 15:25:39 2022 »
Hello!
 I did not install any bluetooth application. But I can see that some bt modules are active.
Any ideas, thank you.

I am not quite sure how to blacklist bluetooth.
There is no /etc/sysconfig/modules.d/ folder in my installation of Nutyx.

Hi Dj

Blacklist it in a /etc/sysconfig/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file as done with the forte module in the example below:

In root:

Code: [Select]
mkdir -p /etc/sysconfig/modules.d
echo "blacklist forte" >/etc/sysconfig/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Blacklisted modules can still be loaded manually with the explicit modprobe command.

BR,
Thierry

Sorry for bumping this thread. I have been trying to blacklist acpi-cpufreq.
 But that module is still active.
 Can anyone help ?

What is the file you're using for blacklisting ?
