Loading and unloading a driver

Updated: May 06, 2022

You can load drivers into the stack from the command line.

For example:

io-pkt-v4-hc -de1000
Note: Make sure that all drivers are located in a directory that can be resolved by the LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable if you don't want to have to specify the fully qualified name of the device in the command line.

You can also mount a driver in the standard way:

mount -Tio-pkt /lib/dll/devnp-e1000.so

The standard way to remove a driver from the stack is with the ifconfig iface destroy command. For example:

ifconfig wm0 destroy
