loader.conf

The file loader.conf contains descriptive information on all the modules the kernel needs to boot the system, some entries are added automatically during installation

This list is what I use on Thinkpads that I have installed FreeBSD on (an x220 and a T60), non Thinkpaddery entries may work on other laptops but can be guaranteed
