    ARGGGG, what command did I forget !!!!


    OMG, for the life of me I cannot remember this command...

    basicly I cant remember the command that will display what PID is using a certain module


    e.g.
    rmmod eepro100
    output: eepro100: Device or resource busy

    so now i need to do a [COMMAND] eepro100 in order to find out what PID to kill so therefor I can unload the module

    I know its simple, I just cannot remember that damn command...



    Thanks ya'll

    Not sure if I am right here

    ps -ax

    Show all the system running processes then find the related one to that module.

    Its you started network that is holding the eepro100 module. Stop the network with /etc/init.d/network stop and then again try to do rmod eepro100 on the module.

    The command to view processes is correctly ps -efl | grep <what you want to search>
