NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     kldload -- load a file into the kernel

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     kldload [-v] file ...

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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 option is available:

     -v      Be more verbose.

FILES    [Toc]    [Back]

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

DIAGNOSTICS    [Toc]    [Back]

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


     Some modules (ipfw, ipf, 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    [Toc]    [Back]

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

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

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