Finding driver versions.

Hi all.

What is the best way to find the version of a driver, or all drivers from the command line?

Thanks alot.

Assuming you have the drivers as kernel modules, try the modinfo command. Just pass the name of the driver module to that command. It will also output parameters that are possible to pass to the module itself.
