Python bindings for kmod/libkmod
kmod is a set of tools to handle common tasks with Linux kernel modules like insert, remove, list, check properties, resolve dependencies and aliases.
These tools are designed on top of libkmod, a library that is shipped with kmod. It can be found at:
python-kmod is a Python wrapper module for libkmod, exposing common module operations: listing installed modules, modprobe, and rmmod. It is at:
Example (python invoked as root)
>>> import kmod >>> km = kmod.Kmod() >>> [(m.name, m.size) for m in km.loaded()] [(u'nfs', 407706), (u'nfs_acl', 12741) ... (u'virtio_blk', 17549)] >>> km.modprobe("btrfs") >>> km.rmmod("btrfs")
Ensure Python, Cython, and the kmod headers are installed and run:
$ python setup.py build
