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

NAME
     kldxref --	generate hints for the kernel loader

SYNOPSIS
     kldxref [-Rdv] [-f	hintsfile] path	...

DESCRIPTION
     The kldxref utility is used to generate hint files	which list modules,
     their version numbers, and	the files that contain them.  These hints are
     used by the kernel	loader to determine where to find a particular KLD
     module.

     A separate	hint file is generated for each	directory listed on the	com-
     mand line that contains modules.  If no hint records are generated	for a
     particular	directory, no hint file	is created, and	the preexisting	hint
     file (if there was	one in that directory) is removed.

     The following options are available:

     -R	     Recurse into subdirectories.

     -d	     Do	not generate a hint file, but print module metadata on stan-
	     dard output.

     -f	hintsfile
	     Specify a different name for the hints files than linker.hints.

     -v	     Operate in	verbose	mode.

EXAMPLES
     To	build hint files for both standard and add-on modules:

	   kldxref /boot/kernel	/boot/modules

     To	build hint files for all installed kernels:

	   kldxref -R /boot
