Modprobe Issues


I was trying to remedy a debian linux laptop that is loaded with Prism II card. Upon card injection, debian automatically loaded orinoco_cs drivers (seen in lsmod). No matter how i tried to modprobe -r orinoco_cs/orinoco/yenta_socket/hermes, i would be prompted with, Device is Busy.

I've checked out /etc/pcmcia/hostap.conf and /etc/pcmcia/hermes.conf and modified the linksys entries to hermes.conf, however, orinoco is still loaded upon injection.

How can i unload orinoco and load the hostap drivers instead? Can it be automated infuture?

so youv checked your startup scripts and removed this module from loading? upon reboot, it still loads?
another way to unload modules is man rmmod
