NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       lsmod - list loaded modules.

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       lsmod [-hV]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       lsmod shows information about all loaded modules.

       The  format  is	name, size, use count, list of referring modules.  The
       information displayed is identical to that  available  from  /proc/modules.

       If  the module controls its own unloading via a can_unload routine then
       the user count displayed by lsmod is always  -1,  irrespective  of  the
       real use count.
