(SP1) BootManager add-modules bugfix

October 23, 2008 — BarryK
Forum member 'eprv' reported that when two modules were chosen to be loaded at bootup, they were not entered correctly into the 'ADDLIST' variable in /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG. I had previously only tested by adding one module. Fixed.

Changing the subject slightly, I compiled the 'acx' module in 4.1 with kernel, as the newer replacement, 'acx-mac80211' is still immature. If the latter is blacklisted, then at next boot 'acx' will get loaded. However, if your reason for blacklisting 'acx-mac80211' was because you wanted to use ndiswrapper, then you would have to go through a second reboot to get rid of 'acx'. Yeah, well, I reckon that is sufferable, the Wizard does prompt that the second reboot is required.
It has been suggested that 'acx' should be blacklisted by default, but perhaps then the user would never even discover its existence I'm not convinced.
