Default Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

Another "me too" -- I just bought a GeForce 6600 GT with my new amd64 box and am very disappointed I cannot run it with FreeBSD.

I realize I am a minority of a minority here, but by all accounts 80-90% of your binary code is portable and is already being compiled for 64 bit Linux, so the work to glue it into FreeBSD is minimal. Also, I see on this thread you have offers of free development help from the FreeBSD community, so the cost and effort on your end is negligible.

The FreeBSD community may be small, but its a technologically savvy bunch with a fair bit of market influence.

For me, NV's responsiveness here will determine my future purchases and the recommendations I make to my consulting customers.

Thanks.
