(SP1) Updated PREFLIST

October 28, 2008 — BarryK
Tempestuous has recommended a couple of changes in the PREFLIST variable in /etc/rc.d/MODULESCONFIG. This variable is read/written by the BootManager. The order of ath5k and ath_pci has been reversed and 'r8169:r8101' has been added:

#PREFLIST: sometimes there are two hits, that is, two modules match the same
#'modalias' (that is, they are both claiming the same hardware). In such a case,
#here we can specify a preference. Each entry here is of the form
#'module1:module2' where module2 is the preferred choice.
#note, list needs a space char at beginning and at end.
