Simple program to insert a module into the Linux Kernel
' insmod 'u insmod [ filename ][ moduleoptions ...]
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 .
