# This file lists those modules which we don't want to be loaded by
# alias expansion, usually so some other driver will be loaded for the
# device instead.
# evbug is a debug tool that should be loaded explicitly
# these drivers are very simple, the HID drivers are usually preferred
# replaced by e100
# replaced by tulip
# causes no end of confusion by creating unexpected network interfaces
# snd_intel8x0m can interfere with snd_intel8x0, doesn't seem to support much
# hardware on its own (Ubuntu bug #2011, #6810)
# Conflicts with dvb driver (which is better for handling this device)
# causes failure to suspend on HP compaq nc6000 (Ubuntu: #10306)
# replaced by p54pci
# replaced by b43 and ssb.
# most apps now use garmin usb driver directly (Ubuntu: #114565)
# replaced by asus-laptop (Ubuntu: #184721)
# low-quality, just noise when being used for sound playback, causes
# hangs at desktop session start (Ubuntu: #246969)
# ugly and loud noise, getting on everyone's nerves; this should be done by a
# nice pulseaudio bing (Ubuntu: #77010)
# EDAC driver for amd76x clashes with the agp driver preventing the aperture
# from being initialised (Ubuntu: #297750). Blacklist so that the driver
# continues to build and is installable for the few cases where its
# really needed.
