Getting info about Modules and their usage


Looking at my lsmod list, I see that snd_maestro3 is purportedly used by 1 (proc?, mod?, thing?...). On some modules, it lists the names of the, er, things that are using that module. But on snd_maestro3, it says that one thing is using it, but doesn't provide a name. What does that imply, and how do I find out what that thing is?

You might be able to get some more useful clues by using this command:

modprobe -nvr snd_maestro3

See:

man modprobe
