INSMOD(8)                                                            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: if the
       filename is a hyphen, the module is taken  from  standard  input.  Most
       users will want to use modprobe(8) instead, which is more clever.

       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 usu-
       ally gives more information about errors.
