Enabling loadable module support in kernel - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

Is it possible to enable loadable module support in the kernel without recompiling ? Is there a parameter that can be set in sysctl.conf ? This is running kernel 2.4.18 or RH8 Thanks Steve...

    To answer your question, no.
    However, almost all precompiled linux distribution kernels have this
    already enabled. -or is this a custom kernel you or someone else built?

    What problems are you having?

    No. Some code that is required for loading modules was not compiled into the
    kernel.

     

    Nope - there are some parameters that have their default value set by the
    kernel configuration,but these are clearly labelled as 'default setting' and
    the more info on them says 'to modify this at run time. do blah'.

    Not if you compiled it out in the *first* place. The default RH 8.0 kernel
    has loadable modules enabled. While there are potential security risks of
    allowing loadable modules, I think they're usually vastly outweighed by the
    flexibility of having them loadable.
