I'm sorry, if you think I insult you. But I wouldn't mess the basics
knownledge with experience. You have to experiment and try to know
something new, always.

If restrict the subject only to kernel and its modules then yes, it is,
IMHO, the only sane way to deal with modules.

See my other message in the thread.
P.S. I don't like to reboot my desktop without serious reasone (it runs
like a server and, it is a secret, I'm using rtorrent on it :).
