KLDCONFIG(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		  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 specified for
	     adding is already present in the search path, or if a path	speci-
	     fied 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 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.

EXIT STATUS
     The kldconfig utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.
