1.0-8756 for FreeBSD/i386 should be made available soon.

@matheusber: what kinds of problems do you have with the 1.0-8178 NVIDIA FreeBSD graphics driver release, exactly?

Hi there zander, any plans to release AMD64 driver for FreeBSD?

If yes, when?

If no, why not?

Would be nice to have a 1.0-8756 for FreeBSD/AMD64.

I'm looking forward to support for 7800GT cards since xorg doesn't seem to like the card very much running the nv driver.

System freezes after a random period of time. Total lockup, requiring hardware reset. The time to freeze is not predictable, but the freeze behaviour is consistent. Does not occur with vanilla BSD nv driver. See my more detailed post from earlier this evening. Thanks!

I have installed a 7600GT on a freebsd 6.1RC1 box, and right now, I'm writing this message using the vesa driver in 1024x768 (nv from xorg coredumps). I have no other options, so can you tell us if soon is a matter of days, weeks or months?

thanks and bye
