Thanks for the ideas, something like rmmod was really what I was looking for, unfortunatly if won't let me remove the module I want to because it is in use. I looked in modules.conf, but I didn't see anything that looked useful. My problem is that my tv tuner and my sound card don't want to get along, in other words I can only run one at a time. And I wouldn't mind too much except for the fact that you can't hear the tv if the soundcard module isn't running! For some reason some tv tuner module is being placed where the soundcard module is supposed to go, so I can't load the soundcard module after the tv tuner module is loaded. I was hoping I could rmmod the tv tuner modules that were in the wrong place and get the soundcard modules to load. Does anybody have any ideas of what to do?
