Question Find out module names


Hi. Simple question. Is there a way to find an exact module name which has to be loaded for a piece of hardware, besides trying to guess it from the kernel drivers folder or google it?

Well... one thing you can do is list out the modules that are currently loaded for a running kernel:

/bin/lsmod

This will list all of the modules running at any given time. To get the information on any particular module listed there, you can then do the following:

/sbin/modinfo <module-name>
