insmod [filename] [module options ...]
insmod is a trivial program to insert a module into the kernel: if the
filename is a hyphen, the module is taken from standard input. Most
users will want to use modprobe(8) instead, which is more clever and
can handle module dependencies.
Only the most general of error messages are reported: as the work of
trying to link the module is now done inside the kernel, the dmesg usu-
ally gives more information about errors.
