You didn't mention which driver it was, so there's no way to answer this question.

Rt61pci is the name of the driver.
I know that it is a beta, not working very well, that's why I want to remove
it, to change it to a newer version.
This is what I finde in the logs:


May 21 11:45:17 springbox kernel: Unloading module: rt61pci - CVS (N/A) by
http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com.
May 21 11:45:18 springbox kernel: ACPI: PCI interrupt for device
0000:03:00.0 disabled
May 21 11:45:19 springbox kernel: Loading module: rt61pci - CVS (N/A) by
http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com.
May 21 11:45:19 springbox kernel: ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:03:00.0[A] ->
Link [C0B9] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11

Question is obviously is this because FC4 or is it due to the driver itself.

So-far I have to eject the card, delete the drivers, do a depmod and insert
the card again.

With best regards

Please try # modprobe -r and see what happens. But both rmmod and modprobe act on the kernel not on what is saved on the hard drive. If you want to remove the mod that takes another action.
