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.
