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 usually gives more information about errors.
