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

NAME
     kldunload - unload a file from the kernel

SYNOPSIS
     kldunload [-f] [-v] -i id
     kldunload [-f] [-v] [-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_QUISCE
               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
     The kldunload utility first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0, replacing the lkm(4)
     interface.
