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.
