I just try to make sure that I have the module dependancies updated,
and then use 'modprobe' to load my modules; I've never had a problem
with that under Slack.  That way, if I know that I need a module
loaded (say, i810_audio) I just say 'modprobe i810_audio' and it loads
anything that it depends on.
