How to hardware driver


Hi

I am running Red Hat Linux Advanced Server release 2.1AS (Pensacola).

When I ran kudzu it showed me some new hardware which it found and I asked him to configure the new found hardware butt to find out it has screw up the system. Now I want to remove some of the drivers.

Does any one can tell me how to remove this?

By removing the hardware I can do this (force the kernel to discover and remove the drivers at the next boot)

Regards

You should be able to remove drivers that are not in use with the modprobe -r command. You can keep those drivers from being loaded on the next boot by blacklisting them, which means you enter the name into the /etc/hotplug/blacklist file (at least, that is where I think it will be).

Investigate the lsmod command.
