To load as a kernel loadable module after boot:
kldload coda


The coda kernel module allows the experimental, third-party Coda distributed file system client to be used with FreeBSD. The module allows the userspace Coda client daemon, Venus, to present the Coda distributed file system namespace via the local /coda file system mountpoint via the /dev/cfs0 special device.
To use Coda, the Coda client software package must also be installed; more information on Coda may be found in the Coda documentation distributed with that package.


loader.conf(5), kldload(8)


Support for coda first appeared in FreeBSD 3.0.

The Coda distributed file system is considered experimental, and production deployment should occur only after careful consideration of the risks of deploying experimental software.
