kldconfig(8)

NAME

kldconfig - display or modify the kernel module search path

SYNOPSIS

kldconfig [-dfimnUv] [-S sysctlname] [path ...]
kldconfig -r

DESCRIPTION

The kldconfig utility displays or modifies the search path
used by the
kernel when loading modules using the kldload(8) utility or
the
kldload(2) syscall.
The following options are available:
-d Remove the specified paths from the module search
path.
-f Do not display a diagnostic message if a path speci
fied for
adding is already present in the search path, or if
a path specified for removing is not present in the search path.
This may be
useful in startup/shutdown scripts for adding a path
to a file
system which is still not mounted, or in shutdown
scripts for
unconditionally removing a path that may have been
added during
startup.
-i Add the specified paths to the beginning of the
search path, not
to the end. This option can only be used when
adding paths.
-m Instead of replacing the module search path with the
set of paths
specified, ``merge'' in the new entries.
-n Do not actually change the module search path.
-r Display the current search path. This option cannot
be used if
any paths are also specified.
-S sysctlname
Specify the sysctl name to use instead of the de
fault
kern.module_path.
-U ``Unique-ify'' the current search path - if any of
the directo
ries is repeated one or more times, only the first
occurrence
remains. This option implies -m.
-v Verbose output: display the new module search path.
If the path
has been changed, and the -v flag is specified more
than once,
the old path is displayed as well.

FILES

/boot/kernel, /boot/modules, /modules
The default module search path used by the kernel.
