how to tell to kernel to stop trying installing a specific module?


I have a PCI radiolink
2.4.20 doesn't seem to support RADIO (it sees the chip, but anyways, while booting it says ERROR)
ok I don't care about that error as long as:
a. If i fix it, i would not have radio
b. if it was only ONCE shown...

yet I have it about 5 or 6 times showing in my display.. (and that is really iritating..)

please, how can I tell to Slack 9.0 to *totally* forget that radiolink PCI ( i use it in win2k )

thank you in advance

rmmod module

Does anyone know which file to manually edit to comment a module so it doesn't load?

rc.modules, I think it's in /etc/rc.d

(I'm at work on a windoze so I can't check :-)

How is /etc/modules.conf different from /etc/rc.d/rc.modules?

They look the exactly the same.

Yes, that's the file /lib/modules/2.4.20/modules.dep
You can simply comment the unwanted module out with #
I have had the same problem after I choosed 8139too.o.gz manually for my ethernet card. Then I had to comment out 8139cp.o.gz to get rid of lots of error messages.
