How to install the kernel module for running Fieldiag.

I am trying to run Fieldiag (NVIDIA Field Diagnostic software).
However I can’t install the Feildiag Kernel Module.
I got the following error when I installed the kernel module using the following command.

$ sudo ./
modprove: FATAL: Module nvidia is in use.
-e Unable to unload nvidia module

Please help me to solve this issue.


sudo rmmod nvidia-uvm
sudo rmmod nvidia

If that doesn’t work, then there is some user (like X windows) that is making use of the NVIDIA driver, and you won’t be able to easily unload it manually that way. You’ll need to find out what the user is, and stop/unload it.

Thank you very much for your comment.
I can run
But I got new issue.

When I run “sudo ./feildaig” after installing module, Fieldiag program started.
However Fieldaig outputs “ModsDrvBreakPoint” many times.
It seems to enter into loop operation.

Please help me to solve this issue.

where did you get the fieldiag ?

not sure if this is still active but i am having the same issue with the ** ModsDrvBreakPoint **
