Default 100.14.19 for FreeBSD i386 and RELENG_7

For those who may not know, the code base was branched a few days ago in preparation for 7.0-RELEASE. Now HEAD is 8-CURRENT. Given that 100.14.11 has worked for many many people (including myself ... I am currently running 100.14.11 under 7.0-PRERELEASE) running on 7.0-current as it proceeded to this point, is there going to be another small point release that will keep nv-freebsd.h from complaining about detecting 7.x-current? Will this driver be "supported" on 7.0-RELEASE / 7.x-STABLE as it was under the 6.x world?

Thanks for the efforts guys!

Yes, nv-freebsd.h will eventually be updated to reflect 7.0-RELEASE support.

The #error reflects the driver's support for FreeBSD 7.x/-CURRENT; you can edit the ../src/nv-freebsd.h header file at your own risk, but official support won't be added until FreeBSD 7.0-RELEASE.

Default There's a reason why 7 isn't supported yet.

Don't forget to apply this patch:

Without it, your box will freeze / reboot randomly.

Has there been any recent news on this update? It seems to be somewhat stalled.

thanks.

The most recent FreeBSD graphics driver release supports 7.0-RELEASE; please see http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=113922. Updated legacy graphics driver releases should follow in the near future.
