i'm quite sure i figured it out the "long" way. However, it was quick and dirty, and should work on any system I think... 1) I installed, xmms (or any program to play audio I think would work) 2) ran a short shell script as follows: cd $MODULES_DIRECTORY # /modules on 4.x and /boot/kernel on 5.x for f in snd_*; do kldload $f; done #this loads every possible sound module 3) play music with xmms 4) while music is playing execute the following: cd $MODULES_DIRECTORY for f in snd_*; do kldunload $f; done #this unloads all snd modules, however the one in use fails :) 5) kldstat # to view current loaded modules. I'm sure I could just have looked it up somewhere, but I'm backwards.
