Little Linux server tuning, blacklist not needed modules

For my VM Linux Severs I’m using following kernel module blacklist:

 blacklist mii
 blacklist serio_raw
 blacklist pcspkr
 blacklist psmouse
 blacklist lp
 blacklist parport
 blacklist snd
 blacklist soundcore
 blacklist snd_via82xx
 blacklist gameport
 blacklist snd_ac97_codec
 blacklist parport_pc

Don’t forget to call update-initramfs -u after altering the blacklist.conf !

Do only blacklist the mii module if you have the vmxnet module up and running !!

have fun 🙂
