    Question How to reload modules automatically ???

    Hello everybody,

    I have a question, how is it possible to reload module on hotplug, if it is already loaded ? E.g. execute automatically
     modprobe -r somedriver && modprobe somedriver
    Thnaks in advance for useful hints,
    Original problem: I have a DVB-T USB stick; when I boot the system with it inserted, it works fine; however if I take it out and hotplug later, I get
    dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'LITE-ON USB2.0 DVB-T Tuner'
    in dmesg.
    The problem has been reported by several peoples, seems it is a bug in dvb driver. The first "work-around" is to reboot the system
    the second "hack" is to reload the drivers dvb_.... (available only to root). So it would be nice if system made this automatically

    was having a loading problem with the battery module with kernel 3.1.5 and put the line @ the end of /etc/profile ( debian )

    modprobe -r ${MODULE} && modprobe ${MODULE}

    where ${MODULE} is the module you want to reload.
