I am currently working on the zcu102 board. I generated a custom Linux module with "petalinux-create -t modules --names fpga --enable". The module fpga.ko is built and placed into /lib/module/4.9.0-xilinx-v20117.4/extra
It is started at start-up when booting the kernel. I guess it runs insmod. It is possible to unload the module via rmmod..... But when trying to "modprobe" the module, it returns that the module cannot be found in modules.dep. The module IS in modules.dep and has no depedency (extra/fpga.ko: )
I tried different things:
Could you check that this functionality is working for you. Is there any problem with 2017.4?
Thanks in advance for your help!

I unsderstood that "insmod" is just loading the module. Modprobe is loading +initializing the module.
Insmod does not run the probe function in the driver... and it is what I wanted to do
