How to remove module permanently


Hi there I am trying to remove the sn9c102 module from my computer as it keeps interfering with my spca5xx driver loading into the right device number. I have tried the modprobe -r sn9c102 suggested in other threads but that only seems to remove it temporarily. On reboot it seems to load back up again. I cant remember which file I editted to launch it or whether i enabled it as a module in the kernel compilation. Does anyone know if such an option is available (and the path i need to take in the option tree to get to it?) or any locations i should try to see where it is getting started from?

i've tried the

/etc/modules.conf
/etc/rc.d/rc.modules
/etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6
/etc/conf.d/local.start
/home/mark/.bashrc


Any ideas?

I'm not sure if this applies to Gentoo, but there is usually a file called:

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist

If you add an entry:

blacklist sn9c102

Then that module will never be loaded.

Is there any way that I can uninstall a module by wiping it off the computer somehow? I cant see the option to enable it and i've forgotten how I managed to install it in the first place.
