A [probably not perfect] solution to this has been to hook onto the "systemd-remount-fs.service" systemd service, which is the remounting of the filesystem to read-write. This means the module will be loaded as early as possible, whilst still being loaded after the filesystem becomes readwrite. My sample systemd config file is as follows: [Unit] ...

You can use DKMS install command (Ref: man dkms) to rebuild and install the module for specific kernel. Below an example created by removing virtualbox modules for one kernel version. sudo dkms install <module-name>/<module-version> -k <kernel-version> $ dkms status vboxhost, 5.0.10, 4.2.0-21-generic, x86_64: installed vboxhost, 5.0.10, ...

According to 22.5. Setting Module Parameters (Fedora, and also Red Hat Enterprise): Because parameters cannot be dynamically set for a module that is already loaded into a running kernel, there are two different methods for setting them. and it goes on to describe how to reload a module, setting the desired parameters using modprobe. According to ...

If you statically link everything you need you can then simply use "makeoptions NO_MODULES=yes" so you're not building unnecessary modules. This can also be accomplished with MODULES_OVERRIDE and/or WITHOUT_MODULES. The ability to load modules at runtime is not always a good thing. The module could be a rootkit for instance. SECURELEVEL also mitigates ...

Speaking about Debian-derived distributions: They can differentiate multiple architectures within the same repository (including 32bit vs 64bit). The kernel modules are stored in a kernel-specific tree /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/ so you could build a package that included a module for all your possible different kernel versions and the right one would be ...

You can try new installation media (a new OS). Despite Oracle owning it, I have found that even relatively new versions of Oracle Linux are not always compatible with relatively new versions of Oracle Virtualbox.

In the good old times of ISA sound cards, it was not possible to create device nodes in /dev/ dynamically, so all devices had to be preallocated. This resulted in a limit of 8 sound cards, and the drivers were written with this limit in mind. Later, when devfs and USB were introduced, this limit was removed. However, the easiest way to do this was to make ...

Sorry, It's a comment rather than a solution, as I don't have enough reputation for comment. sp is a nonsense value. [ 40.103558] NetworkManager[332]: segfault at 8 ip 00000000004ca126 sp 00007ffca7ec45c8 error 4 in NetworkManager[400000+1c5000] So, the stupid way may be to objdump the NetworkManager and read the source of it to find why [ip = ...
