Sound problems.

I have had my sound die on me recently while playing music with iTunes. Does anyone know how to reload the sound driver/kext/daemon or whatever it is w/o having to restart the computer?

Thanks in advance for any help,

If you run 'sudo kmodstat' do you see any names with Audio in them loaded? On my DP G4/500, I see three:

com.apple.iokit.IOAudioFamily
com.apple.driver.AppleDBDMAAudio
com.apple.driver.AppleScreamerAudio

If not, see if you can do a kmodload of the right extension(s) from /System/Library/Extensions/AppleOnboardAudio.kext/Contents/PlugIns (not sure of the exact syntax for kmodload, but just running it without any args gives a usage).

Thanks. Now I can find out which kext is dying so I can report it to Apple.
