    insmod file.ko takes very long time


    The "insmod file.ko" command takes several minutes to finish. What could be the problem in my 2.6.11 kernel?

    Well I would be very surprised if anybody could answer you without giving you an answer.How anybody should know what module file.ko really does?
    There may be many reasons e.g. you are waiting in init routine for some event ...

    I don't think this has anything to do with my module. My module sends a message to the console before anything else. Besides, the same module works fine on a 2.4.20 kernel. The module is more than 8MB but it shouldn't take several minutes to load.

    it is pretty much ... I've never seen such huge module

    dmesg to see what's going on in your module.
