KSC(1) User Commands KSC(1)
ksc - Linux kernel module source checker
ksc [ -d | --directory ] DIRECTORY
ksc [ -k | --ko ] FILE
KSC accepts command-line arguments, and has both a long and short form usage. You can
use either style or combine them to specify options. When the tool is run with kernel mod-
ule sources it checks for all four architectures, and when run with binary kernel modules,
it checks for the specific architecture for which the binary was built.
Valid RHEL whitelist releases are rhel6.0, rhel6.1, rhel6.2, rhel6.3, rhel6.4

-c CONFIG, --config=CONFIG
path to the local ksc.conf file. If not specified the tool tries to read from

path to the directory
to create text files to be used internally.
-k KO, --ko=KO
path to the ko file. You should either use -d or -k to run the KSC tool, but not

the -k option is discarded.
