NAME

Rex::Commands::Kernel - Load/Unload Kernel Modules

DESCRIPTION

With this module you can load and unload kernel modules.

Version <= 1.0: All these functions will not be reported.

All these functions are not idempotent.

SYNOPSIS

 kmod load => "ipmi_si";
 
 kmod unload => "ipmi_si";

EXPORTED FUNCTIONS

kmod($action => $module)

This function loads or unloads a kernel module.

 task "load", sub {
   kmod load => "ipmi_si";
 };
 
 task "unload", sub {
   kmod unload => "ipmi_si";
 };

If you're using NetBSD or OpenBSD you have to specify the complete path and, if needed the entry function.

 task "load", sub {
   kmod load => "/usr/lkm/ntfs.o";
   kmod load => "/path/to/module.o", entry => "entry_function";
 };
