KXKextManager.h   [plain text]

 * @header KXKextManager
 * KXKextManager maintains a database of kernel extensions (kexts),
 * allowing kexts to be retrieved by their filesystem location,
 * CFBundleIdentifier, and other attributes. If the current process
 * is running as the superuser, it can also use the kext manager to
 * load kernel extensions and to send I/O Kit personalities to the
 * kernel in order to trigger driver matching.
 * KXKextManager organizes its kernel extensions in two ways. The
 * first is by collections of kexts, which are known as repositories.
 * The only kind of repository currently supported is a directory
 * in the filesystem containing kext bundles; others may be added
 * in the future. There are functions for adding and removing
 * repositories, which scan their directories for kernel extension
 * bundles, as well as functions for adding and removing
 * individual kernel extensions; the latter automatically add a
 * repository as needed, but this repository doesn't scan its directory
 * for other kernel extensions.
 * The second way that KXKextManager organizes extensions spans all
 * of the known repositories, collecting kexts into a dictionary
 * keyed by CFBundleIdentifier. This allows any kext to be found for
 * a given identifier. If there are multiple bundles for a given
 * identifier, the first kext under the identifier has accessor
 * functions for the next prior version and for any duplicate versions.
 * other settings: safeboot, loadintask, performtests, logLevel, userInput
 * heading: using kextmanager to load kexts
 * heading: using kextmanager to inspect & manage kexts
