Humm, I'm not really a sound genius, I just got the mixer settings for my 
laptop to save/restore across boot. :)  However, it strikes me that perhaps 
the rcNG framework should include some sort of helper API for handling 
dependent modules much like it has one for scripts to say that they require a 
certain program to be present if they are going to run successfully rather 
than adding a bunch of one-off hacks to various rc scripts.

Comment 4 Jose M Rodriguez 2005-01-25 20:04:30 UTC
The main goal may be make sysinstall able of configure sound via menu.  I'm 
not a sysinstall or rcNG expert, but this way, if usable, must be better that 
use /boot/loader.conf.
Comment 5 John Baldwin freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2010-10-11 19:57:46 UTC
rcNG does have some builtin methods for handling klds now, but I'm not sure 
that this change really belongs in this script.  I'm going to punt it over to
