Re: sound module stuck

Is there any way to force the removal of a loaded kernel module? For
some reason, my sound just stopped working and all audio programs are
saying that they cant open my audio device, and so I was going to try to
reload the module for my soundcard, but when I do an rmmod es1370 it
says that it is in use (though i'm pretty sure its not.
It's probably being used by another module. Like in this example:
Module Size Used by Tainted: PF
vmnet 17920 5
vmmon 18228 6
i810_audio 20424 0
soundcore 3460 2 [i810_audio]
ac97_codec 9544 0 [i810_audio]
I wouldn't be able to rmmod the soundcore and ac97_codec modulse until I
first rmmod'd the i810_audio module.
So what does the output of lsmod look like?
