    Module in use...

    It means that you are trying to remove the module using the rmmod command while an application still has it open. If you are not actually calling the rmmod command then perhaps your makefile is.

    Cheers!!

    One way to find the application...

    Did you write the module? How can any application have this open if they don't know about it before hand?

    If you didn't which module is it?

    Cheers!!

    i have written this module, but still have no idea what application must be using it.... how it is working right now is that it sometimes works fine and sometimes gives this error....
