SYNOPSIS

kldload [-v]

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 extension 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. Modules must have an extension of .ko.

EXIT STATUS


.Ex -std

AUTOMATICALLY LOADING MODULES

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