INSMOD(8)                 (08/17/2021)                  INSMOD(8)

     NAME
          insmod - Simple program to insert a module into the Linux
          Kernel

     SYNOPSIS
          insmod [filename] [module options...]

     DESCRIPTION
          insmod is a trivial program to insert a module into the
          kernel. Most users will want to use modprobe(8) instead,
          which is more clever and can handle module dependencies.

          Only the most general of error messages are reported: as the
          work of trying to link the module is now done inside the
          kernel, the dmesg usually gives more information about
          errors.
