insmod(8) [bsd man page]

INSMOD(8)							      insmod								 INSMOD(8)

NAME
insmod - Simple program to insert a module into the Linux Kernel SYNOPSIS
insmod [filename] [module options...] DESCRIPTION
insmod is a trivial program to insert a module into the kernel. Most users will want to use modprobe(8) instead, which is more clever and can handle module dependencies. Only the most general of error messages are reported: as the work of trying to link the module is now done inside the kernel, the dmesg usually gives more information about errors. COPYRIGHT

NAME
rmmod - Simple program to remove a module from the Linux Kernel SYNOPSIS
rmmod [-f] [-s] [-v] [modulename] DESCRIPTION
rmmod is a trivial program to remove a module (when module unloading support is provided) from the kernel. Most users will want to use modprobe(8) with the -r option instead. OPTIONS
-v, --verbose Print messages about what the program is doing. Usually rmmod prints messages only if something goes wrong. -f, --force This option can be extremely dangerous: it has no effect unless CONFIG_MODULE_FORCE_UNLOAD was set when the kernel was compiled. With this option, you can remove modules which are being used, or which are not designed to be removed, or have been marked as unsafe (see lsmod(8)). -s, --syslog Send errors to syslog instead of standard error. -V --version Show version of program and exit.
