kldload(8)

NAME

kldload - load a file into the kernel

SYNOPSIS

kldload [-v] 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 .ko exten
sion name is
not mandatory when loading a given module using kldload. It
doesn't hurt
to specify it though.
The following option is available:
-v Be more verbose.

FILES

/boot/kernel directory containing loadable modules. Mod
ules must have
an extension of .ko.

EXIT STATUS AUTOMATICALLY LOADING MODULES

Some modules (lomac, pf, ipfw, ipf, etc.) may be automati
cally loaded at
boot time when the corresponding rc.conf(5) statement is
used. Modules
may also be auto-loaded through their addition to load
er.conf(5).

HISTORY

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