module utility


What is the module utility to list data on a given module?

i.e. to find out it's version number?

Try

# modinfo <modulename>

This gives some interesting output:

Code:
Qbert:~# modinfo 8139too
filename:    /lib/modules/2.4.21/kernel/drivers/net/8139too.o
description: "RealTek RTL-8139 Fast Ethernet driver"
author:      "Jeff Garzik <jgarzik@pobox.com>"
license:     "GPL"
parm:        multicast_filter_limit int, description "8139too maximum number of filtered multicast addresses"
parm:        max_interrupt_work int, description "8139too maximum events handled per interrupt"
parm:        media int array (min = 1, max = 8), description "8139too: Bits 4+9: force full duplex, bit 5: 100Mbps"
parm:        full_duplex int array (min = 1, max = 8), description "8139too: Force full duplex for board(s) (1)"
