RMMOD(8)                  (08/17/2021)                   RMMOD(8)

     NAME
          rmmod - Simple program to remove a module from the Linux
          Kernel

     SYNOPSIS
          rmmod [-f] [-s] [-v] [modulename]

     DESCRIPTION
          rmmod is a trivial program to remove a module (when module
          unloading support is provided) from the kernel. Most users
          will want to use modprobe(8) with the -r option instead.

     OPTIONS
          -v, --verbose
              Print messages about what the program is doing. Usually
              rmmod prints messages only if something goes wrong.

          -f, --force
              This option can be extremely dangerous: it has no effect
              unless CONFIG_MODULE_FORCE_UNLOAD was set when the
              kernel was compiled. With this option, you can remove
              modules which are being used, or which are not designed
              to be removed, or have been marked as unsafe (see
              lsmod(8)).

          -s, --syslog
              Send errors to syslog instead of standard error.

          -V --version
              Show version of program and exit.
