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 specified 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 default kern.module_path.
-U "Unique-ify" the current search path - if any of the directories 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.
