disabling framebuffer device


How can I disable (rmmod) framebuffer device which was activated by
"modprobe tdfxfb". (I am using stock 2.4.19-686-smp kernel-image)

Simple "rmmod tdfxfb" does not work:

  # "rmmod tdfxfb
  tdfxfb: Device or resource busy

I know I can reboot but that is not cool.


PS: I am having funny cursor (Big white rectangle) problem in FB.  That
    is the reason I want to disable it.  Is there any good FB guide?

    LDP document is old (2000 for 2.2 kernel)
