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
