SYNOPSIS

, −−all

−h, −−noheader

Suppress the column header.

−H, −−help

Display a summary of options and exit.

−m, −−info

Display module information. Includes each module’s kernel load address and size in the listing.

−V, −−version

Display the version of ksyms.

SEE ALSO

insmod(8), modprobe(8), depmod(8), rmmod(8), lsmod(8).

BUGS

ksyms [ −V | −−version ] should exit immediately. Instead, it prints the version information and behaves as if no options were given.

Although the fix for this bug is trivial, it changes the behaviour of modutils. Given the large number of distributions and scripts that run modutils and expect the current behaviour, any change of behaviour is unacceptable in 2.4. Don’t bother sending patches for this bug, it will not be fixed in 2.4, it should be fixed in 2.5.

HISTORY

The ksyms command was first conceived by Bjorn Ekwall <bj0rn [AT] blox.se>
The ’−m’ option was inspired by David Hinds <dhinds [AT] allegro.edu>
Updated for 2.1.17 by Richard Henderson <rth [AT] tamu.edu>
