MODINFO(8)                                                          MODINFO(8)

       modinfo - program to show information about a Linux Kernel module

       modinfo [ -0 ]  [ -F field ]  [ -k kernel ]  [ modulename|filename... ]

       modinfo -V

       modinfo -h

       modinfo  extracts  information  from  the Linux Kernel modules given on the command
       line. If the module name is not a filename, then the /lib/modules/version directory
       is searched, as done by modprobe(8).

       modinfo  by  default  lists each attribute of the module in form fieldname : value,
       for easy reading. The filename is listed the same way (although it's not really  an

       This version of modinfo can understand modules of any Linux Kernel architecture.

       -V --version
              Print the modinfo version.

       -F --field
              Only  print this field value, one per line. This is most useful for scripts.
              Field names are case-insenitive.  Common fields (which may not be  in  every
              module)  include  author,  description,  license,  parm, depends, and alias.
              There are often multiple parm, alias and depends fields. The  special  field
              filename lists the filename of the module.

       -k kernel
              Provide  information about a kernel other than the running one. This is par-
              ticularly useful for distributions needing to  extract  information  from  a
              newly  installed  (but  not yet running) set of kernel modules. For example,
              you wish to find which firmware files are needed by various modules in a new
              kernel for which you must make an initrd image prior to booting.

       -0 --null
              Use  the  ASCII  zero  character  to separate field values, instead of a new
              line. This is useful for scripts, since a new line can theoretically  appear
              inside a field.

       -a -d -l -p -n
              These  are  shortcuts  for  author,  description, license. parm and filename
              respectively, to ease the transition from the old modutils modinfo.
