Python binding for kmod

Project description

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:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=utils/kernel/kmod/kmod.git;a=summary

python-kmod is a Python wrapper module for libkmod, exposing common module operations: listing installed modules, modprobe, and rmmod. It is at:

https://github.com/agrover/python-kmod

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")

Building

Ensure Python, Cython, and the kmod headers are installed and run:

$ python setup.py build
