NAME

       rmmod - Simple program to remove a module from the Linux Kernel

SYNOPSIS

       rmmod [-f] [-w] [-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)).

       -w --wait
           Normally, rmmod will refuse to unload modules which are in use.
           With this option, rmmod will isolate the module, and wait until the
           module is no longer used. Nothing new will be able to use the
           module, but it's up to you to make sure the current users
           eventually finish with it. See lsmod(8)) for information on usage
           counts.

       -s, --syslog
           Send errors to syslog instead of standard error.

       -V --version
           Show version of program and exit.
