NAME

kldload -- load a file into the kernel

SYNOPSIS

kldload [-nv] file ...

DESCRIPTION

The kldload utility loads file.ko into the kernel using the kernel linker. Note that if multiple modules are specified then an attempt will be made to load them all, even if some fail. The following options are available: -n Do not try to load module if already loaded. -v Be more verbose.

FILES

/boot/modules directory containing loadable modules. Modules must have an extension of .ko.

EXIT STATUS

The kldload utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

AUTOMATICALLY LOADING MODULES

Some modules (ipfw, etc.) may be automatically loaded at boot time by having their operation enabled in rc.conf(5). Modules may also be auto- loaded through their addition to loader.conf(5).

SEE ALSO

kldload(2), loader.conf(5), rc.conf(5), kldstat(8), kldunload(8)

HISTORY

The kldload utility first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0, replacing the lkm(4) interface.
