Automatic unloading of kernel modules
 
Hi all,

I would like to ask whether kernel modules that are loaded in kernel memory, but they are not getting used from long time, then in this case, what is the behaviour of kernel ? Does kernel unload modules or kernel modules remain in kernel memory until system is up ?

Please guide me.

Thanks and Regards,
Tarun

auto unloading was removed in 2.6, usta have kerneld to do that, i aint bothered recently.

afaik they just sit there now unless you remove with rmmod.

there might be something i've missed in module-init-tools, dunno
