Default Re: Will we ever see an amd64 NVidia driver for FreeBSD?

Hey Zander,

Were similar problems encountered creating the Solaris x86 and x64 drivers do you know? Just curious as I know the BSD(s) have been able to use code from Solaris as the projects have compatible licenses. As such perhaps the BSD community need not develop these kernel features from scratch but could port existing implementations from Solaris(or at least use them as a design reference/guide). Any thoughts? I can see that the supported card list on Solaris is alot shorter(Quadro cards only) is this because it is affected by similar problems or is it just because of the infancy of the drivers?
