I'm trying to add the line

exec rmmod forcedeth 

in the file


and then add the line

modprobe forcedeth msi=0 msix=0 

to /etc/rc.local

but when I try the first command it says not such file or directory, I'm trying to do all this because im trying to enable networking at startup because there is a bug with the drivers for my motherboard my system specs are:

  • board: N68C-GS FX
  • processor: AMD FX eight core processor 3.6 Ghz

I'm running Ubuntu 13.04

I think you mean rmmod, not rommod – Elder Geek Apr 21 '15 at 14:44

Don't know if you'll still need an answer for this, but just in case: module-init-tools has been replaced by kmod, so the first addition (exec rmmod forcedeth) should now be made to /etc/init/kmod.conf instead.

Hope that helps!

I was having this very same problem, and spent a lot of time struggling to figure it out.

The individual at came up with a solution that worked for me

echo options forcedeth msi=0 msix=0 >> /etc/modprobe.d/options
update-initramfs -u
