Note: trivial information from
install foo /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install foo; /sbin/start_udev alias char-major-10-32 foo
I begin from button. Alias is a simple alias, instead you call
Install is like a kind of alias too. With
You be able to call
If you do so the system then executes
From the manpage: For example, if the module "fred" works better with the module "barney" already installed (but it doesn't depend on it, so modprobe won't automatically load it), you could say "install fred /sbin/modprobe barney; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install fred", which would do what you wanted. Note the --ignore-install, which stops the second modprobe from running the same install command again.
If that doesn't tell you what you need to know, can you ask a more specific question?
