            Bug ID: 218610
           Summary: md(4) manpage misses geom_md.ko
           Product: Documentation
           Version: Latest
          Hardware: Any
                OS: Any
            Status: New
          Severity: Affects Some People
          Priority: ---
         Component: Documentation
          Assignee: freebsd-doc at FreeBSD.org
          Reporter: bugzilla.freebsd at omnilan.de

Since MINIMAL kernel configuration lacks "device md", I was curious if there's
a way to boot my memory based systems without recompiling a new kernel.
There's geom_md.ko, which is nowhere documented.

md(4) was apporpriate for that I think.

In SYNOPSIS, under »device md«, the same mentioning of kernel modules like
other pages do would fit:
Alternatively, to load the driver as a module at boot time, place the
following line in loader.conf(5):


Unfortunately I don't know anything of man page formatting nor do I know any
tools to get started.
So this is just a report without patch.
