KLDUNLOAD(8)              BSD 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
     The kldunload utility first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0, replacing the lkm(4)
     interface.
