I've posted to this thread a few times in the past. Almost a year ago now that I think about it. At the time I had noticed that it had been almost 2 years since this thread was started and still there were no Nvidia drivers for FreeBSD/AMD64. Like many of you, this completely blew me away. I never once thought there wouldn't be AMD64 support. I was so sure my card would just work, that I wiped my disk and installed BSD AMD64 without doing the research before hand.
A few days of using AMD64 BSD and I was in love, but 3D is important to me... I had to go back to i386
Recently I've been playing with ZFS on FreeBSD. I haven't had any issues, and know that in the future all my systems will use ZFS.
So here's is my latest thought.
What happens when ZFS shows up as an option in the BSD installer? Right now my only option is to waste half my ram, and run the very memory hungry ZFS in 2 gigs (i386)...
Because I'd rather not give up compiz, accelerated 3d, and all the other nice things that I get from the current Nvidia driver.
I see 21 pages of posts... and not a single response from anyone at Nvidia.
