I'm strangely having trouble getting module options passed to my b43 wireless module. Pretty sure it's operator error. ;)

In /etc/conf.d/modules as per the OpenRC Migration guide, I have:
Code:
modules="b43"
modules_b43_args="pio=1 qos=0"


I'm running sys-apps/openrc-0.11.8

Emerge --info:

System is a recent install - about a month old - problem has persisted since install time.

Thoughts?

Thanks

Whups - forgot to note that it works fine when I insert at the command line, ie:
Code:
modprobe -v b43 pio=1 qos=0


Thx

Well, I found the "solution", as as I suspected it was something silly I did.

My old /etc/conf.d/modules:
Code:
modules="b43"
modules_b43_args="pio=1 qos=0"


Note in the the second line "modules_b43_args

There should NOT have been an "s"

Corrected and working version:
Code:
modules="b43"
module_b43_args="pio=1 qos=0"


Side note: In the process I also (re)learned that you can give module parameters on the kernel command line, in this case adding " b43.pio=1" to the line in my grub.conf worked as well, but a less graceful solution.

Paul
