KLDLOAD(8) MidnightBSD System Manager’s Manual KLDLOAD(8)
kldload — load a file into the kernel
kldload [−v] file ...
The kldload utility loads file.ko into the kernel using the kernel linker. Note that if multiple modules are specified then an attempt will be made to load them all, even if some fail. The .ko extension name is not mandatory when loading a given module using kldload. It doesn’t hurt to specify it though.

directory containing loadable modules. Modules must have an extension of .ko.
The kldload utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

Some modules (lomac, pf, ipfw, ipf, etc.) may be automatically loaded at boot time when the corresponding rc.conf(5) statement is used. Modules may also be auto-loaded through their addition to loader.conf(5).
kldload(2), loader.conf(5), rc.conf(5), kldconfig(8), kldstat(8), kldunload(8)
The kldload utility first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0, replacing the lkm(4) interface.
