I should clarify: there is no accelerated OpenGL/3D driver for FreeBSD amd64, but you can use the XFree86/X.org nv driver.

Is there any likelyhood of one in the future? Is it possible for you to say what's holding back support at this time if there are no plans?

Any info appreciated - I'm wondering whether I should nuke my amd64 install and go for the 32 bit one for the time being on grounds of compatability.

Regards,

Greg
