Autoload Modules?
« on: January 03, 2009, 04:08:49 am »

Where do I add the line item
Code: [Select]
fuse ...in order to load it into the kernel without having to type in
Code: [Select]
modprobe fuse ...everytime I run TrueCrypt (and other programs which request it)?

It maybe that fuse is not executable, check permissions on /etc/rc.d/rc.fuse

You can add things to be executed in /etc/rc.d/rc.local

Added the following line:

Code: [Select]
/sbin/modprobe fuse
into the following file:

Code: [Select]
/etc/rc.d/rc.modules
and all is well now. Though I gather the same line entry into /etc/rc.d/rc.local would have worked as well. However, I just noticed another option through VASMCC > Service > Services for loading the fuse daemon at run level 4. May work as well.

All of the above would have worked.
