FreeBSD 5.4-STABLE and all of a sudden means i cvsuped my ports/src and did 
installworld and buid kernel yesterday 6th April ... rebooted my machine and 
sound hasnt worked since.

/dev/sndstat shows nothing

in loader.conf i have: 
snd_via8233_load="YES"           # via8233

kernel i have:  device  sound

dmesg shows no errors at all and as previously said sound was working before 
the reboot.

loading the module using kldload shows: kldload snd_via8233.ko
kldload: can't load snd_via8233.ko: Exec format error

pciconf -lv shows..
