The modprobe command is used to add and remove modules from the currently running kernel. Note that it also attempts to load module dependencies.


modprobe [options] [module_name]

Key Options:

  • -c displays the current modprobe configuration.
  • -q runs in quiet mode.
  • -R displays all modules that match an alias to assist you in debugging issues.
  • -r removes the specified module from memory.
  • -v displays verbose messages; this is useful for determining how modprobe is performing a task.
