2.3 Preventing the Ksplice Enhanced Client From Patching User-Space Processes and Libraries

If you do not want Ksplice to patch the user-space processes for certain executables or libraries, you can specify them in a /etc/ksplice/blacklist.d configuration file. The following example of a localblacklist.conf file shows how you would prevent Ksplice from patching any process that corresponds to any executable in the /opt/app/bin or /usr/local/bin directory, or from patching any shared library with a name matching liblocal-*. As shown in the following example, the format of the rules is Python regular expressions:

[executables]
^/opt/apt/bin/.*$
^/usr/local/bin/.*$

[targets]
^liblocal-.*$
