Guess you need blacklist the driver/module in /etc/modprobe.conf (If I'm correct?)
Code: blacklist driver/module name (must be done as su).
From a another site:
Note: blacklisting will not work for modules which are built into the kernel image (i.e. not loaded via a separate .ko file. The only way to disable such modules is via a kernel parameter (if available) or by recompiling the kernel.
Just open your /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist file and add drivername using following syntax:
Reboot your box and use lsmod command to show the status of modules in the Linux Kernel
Note: here driver-name is the name of your desired blacklist driver. For example, If you wanted to disable the NIC card driver, you can find the name of kernel driver for your LAN card by using the command lspci -v command in a terminal.
