KLDCONFIG(8)		  BSD System Manager's Manual		  KLDCONFIG(8)

     kldconfig — display or modify the kernel module search path

     kldconfig [-dfimnUv] [-S sysctlname] [path ...]
     kldconfig -r

     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

     -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

     -U	     “Unique-ify” the current search path - if any of the directories
	     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.

     /boot/kernel, /boot/modules, /modules
	     The default module search path used by the kernel.

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

     kldload(2), kldload(8), sysctl(8)

     The kldconfig utility first appeared in FreeBSD 4.4.
