vmware /etc/conf.d/modules OR <*>

Question

Hi, I installed gentoo in vmware.

/usr/src/linux/.config

CONFIG_VMWARE_VSOCKETS=m
CONFIG_VMWARE_BALLOON=m
CONFIG_VMWARE_VMCI=m
CONFIG_VMWARE_PVSCSI=y

I changed them all to =y.

CONFIG_VMWARE_VSOCKETS=y
CONFIG_VMWARE_BALLOON=y
CONFIG_VMWARE_VMCI=y
CONFIG_VMWARE_PVSCSI=y

This is because I don't know how to autoload kernel modules when it's started.
I don't know if that is in /etc/conf.d/modules, because it's definitely not in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-.

File systems  --->
    <*> FUSE (Filesystem in Userspace) support
	 [*] Network device support --->
    [*] Ethernet driver support --->
      (disable every driver but this)
      [*] AMD Devices
        <*> AMD PCNet32 PCI support 

 

Device Drivers  --->                                                    
  [*] Network device support  --->  
    <*> VMware VMXNET3 ethernet driver
# lsmod
Module                  Size  Used by
vmw_vsock_vmci_transport    32768  2
vsock                  36864  3 vmw_vsock_vmci_transport

I don't understand why it shows up as .ko if I didn't specify it like '<M>'.

Even though it works until drag'n' drop, copy/paste is quite unstable, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.

I guess if I specify '<*>' then I don't need to add anything to the /etc/conf.d/modules file, because I did not build the driver as a module, I built it directly into the kernel.
