#380 closed Feature Request (fixed)

Load non-essential modules later

Reported by: gcooper Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: 9.0
Component: Misc Version: 9.0-BETA1
Keywords: Cc: trac-bugs@…


Loading modules in FreeBSD via loader(8) is extremely slow. One of the lesser noted features in 9.x was a minor infrastructure piece introduced by dougb@ where non-essential modules (i.e. not required for system boot in mountroot) could be loaded after mountroot was loaded.

This patch moves all non-essential (network/non-essential device drivers, non-critical filesystems, and non-essential system call) modules from /boot/loader.conf in to /etc/rc.conf .
