how to get the builtin module information


After the system is up, how to know a module(for example:ehci-hcd) is a built-in module? how to get the names for all built-in modules? where and how to check the information for a built-in module?

Thanks in advance!

Assuming by "built in" you mean came with the current kernel, you could try:

Code:
modinfo <module_name> | grep filename | awk '{ print $2 }' | xargs -I module yum provides "module"

kbp, thanks a lot for the reply.
Is there a command like 'lsmod' to display all the built-in kernel modules?

No problem! Mark your thread as solved using the thread tools located at the top of the page, and give rep if you would like.

Cheers!
