RMMOD(1)               Linux Module Support              RMMOD(1)

NAME
       rmmod - unload loadable modules

SYNOPSIS
       rmmod [ -as ] module ...

DESCRIPTION
       Rmmod unloads loadable modules from the running kernel.

       Rmmod  tries  to  unload a set of modules from the kernel,
       with the restriction that they are not  in  use  and  that
       they are not referred to by other modules.

       If  more than one module is named on the command line, the
       modules will be  removed  simultansously.   This  supports
       unloading of stacked modules.

   OPTIONS
       -a     Remove all unused modules.

       -s     Output  everything to syslog(3) instead of the ter-
              minal.
