rem_drv - remove a device driver from the system


rem_drv [ -b basedir ] device_driver


The rem_drv command informs the system that the device driver device_driver is no longer valid. If possible, rem_drv unloads device_driver from memory. Entries for the device in the /devices namespace are removed. rem_drv also updates the system driver configuration files. If rem_drv has been executed, the next time the system is rebooted it will automatically perform a reconfiguration boot (see kernel(1M)).


-b basedir Sets the path to the root directory of the diskless client. Used on the server to execute rem_drv for a client. The client machine must be rebooted to unload the driver.


Example 1: Examples of rem_drv. The following example removes the sd driver from use: example% rem_drv sd The next example removes the driver from the sun1 diskless client. The driver will not be uninstalled nor unloaded until the client machine is rebooted. example% rem_drv -b /export/root/sun1 sd
