KLDUNLOAD(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		  KLDUNLOAD(8)

NAME
     kldunload -- unload a file	from the kernel

SYNOPSIS
     kldunload [-f] [-fv] -i id
     kldunload [-f] [-fv] [-n] name

DESCRIPTION
     The kldunload utility unloads a file which	was previously loaded with
     kldload(8).

     The following options are available:

     -f	      Force the	unload.	 This ignores error returns to MOD_QUIESCE
	      from the module and implies that the module should be unloaded
	      even if it is currently in use.  The users are left to cope as
	      best they	can.

     -v	      Be more verbose.

     -i	id    Unload the file with this	ID.

     -n	name  Unload the file with this	name.

     name     Unload the file with this	name.

DIAGNOSTICS
     The kldunload utility exits with a	status of 0 on success and with	a
     nonzero status if an error	occurs.

SEE ALSO
     kldunload(2), kldload(8), kldstat(8)

HISTORY

     interface.
