Subject: Replacement for blacklisting with 'install MOD /bin/false'?
Date: Sat, 21 Mar 2020 16:22:22 +0200
Message-ID: <> (raw)


I'm looking for a replacement for the deprecated 'install MOD 
/bin/{false,true}' modprobe.d rules for always blacklisting a module. 
The advantage of using the 'install' rule is that the 'blacklist' rules 
are ignored when loading modules manually, but the 'install' rules is 
not. Perhaps there should be a new rule ('always_blacklist'?) which is 
always obeyed?
