How to disable a kernel module temporarily?


i want to add new pendrive driver to my existing ubuntu 9.04.but as it already has usb_storage module;whenever m trying to removw the usb_storage module and want to make the pendrive get recognised by the new added module,the usb_storage module gets loaded with plugging in of pendrive. so, how to let my pendrive driver work instead of usb_storage?

Sigh....someone is going to tell you that this is not the way to get speedy service here----so I won't....

Seriously, here is what is URGENT---for all citizens of the world:
Learn to speak, read, and write the language in use for the situation at hand.
Learn common courtesy---including the magic words "please" and "thank you"
Learn patience and humility

Hi and welcome to LQ.

Please have a look at those two (1 and 2) websites.

The first one will help you ask smart questions. The second one, on the other hand, will tell
you that the support of Ubuntu 9.04 ended on the 23.10.2010.

The best piece of advice would be to upgrade to the latest (and supported) version of Ubuntu.

Instead of 'sir', please try to use correct English. Text speak (for example: n m ur wud i) is discouraged from here.

i know 9.04 is an older version.but i have only its cd with me right now and i have to make changes to this os.if you can help me, then please do.otherwise, dont bother.And "sir" was used just to show respect.You dont have to be so harsh with anybody. Cause whoever is seeing your reply is not a machine, a human.





And i am sorry to bother you all.I thought i would find a solution. But instead i am getting into arguments and controversies.Goodbye. And Thank you....

Have you tried to "blacklist" your module? Check Google
on how to do that if you haven't yet.

Also, sms language is NOT permitted on this forum.
u != you.
pls != please.

Write complete words, also please edit the thread title to:
"How to permanently disable a module in the kernel?"

Priya, Thanks for editing the thread title as requested.
Hope you'll title the threads properly in future, and
won't ask for `urgent` attention any more from the
"volunteers" here.
