modprobe

P: 89
Hi All,

Can any one explain the detail use of modprob ti install or delete a kernel module.

How effective is it to change an existing module.

modules are small parts of the kernel that can be plugged in or removed on the fly

insmod <module>: this will insert the module into the kernel
rmmod <module>: this will remove the module from the kernel
lsmod: this will show all active modules

you can automatically add modules to the kernel by adding it to the /etc/modules file (this file can be different depending on distro, this is debian related)
