Thumbs up Unloading Module i810.o


Hi,
I executed "lsmod" command to see the modules which are all loaded. The output is as follows.

Module Size Used by Not tainted
i810_audio 25224 0 (autoclean)
ac97_codec 13416 0 (autoclean) [i810_audio]
soundcore 6532 2 (autoclean) [i810_audio]
i810 72768 30
agpgart 43104 7 (autoclean)
autofs 13348 0 (autoclean) (unused)
8139too 17704 1
mii 2172 0 [8139too]
ipt_REJECT 3736 6 (autoclean)
iptable_filter 2412 1 (autoclean)
ip_tables 14936 2 [ipt_REJECT iptable_filter]
microcode 4668 0 (autoclean)
mousedev 5524 1
keybdev 2976 0 (unused)
input 5920 0 [mousedev keybdev]
hid 11796 0 (unused)
usb-uhci 26188 0 (unused)
usbcore 77024 1 [hid usb-uhci]

Now I want to unload the drm module (i810.o) which aquires agpgart. I need to load "i810fb.o" which requires agpgart. (I have applied i810fb frambuffer patch to the kernel, compiled the kernel and generated i810fb.o).
What i have to do is,I have to unload "i810.o" and load "i810fb.o"
I used modprode as follows to unload i810.o .
modprobe -r i810. The result is
i810: Device or resource busy.
I also used "rmmod". The result is same.
How to unload the module i810.o ?

ok we'll start slow, there's a file /etc/rc.d/rc.modules this is where all your modules start from when you boot up your machine. Check that file for a reference to the module you wish to unload, if it's there, then comment it out with a ; at the beginning of the line.
