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 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.
