Default Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

It HAS to be done. We all would appreciate it so much. On top of that, as AMD64 is growing more popular you will end up making the driver sooner or later anyways, so what do you have to lose? Nothing!

One more to the "Please make drivers for FreeBSD AMD64"-list!

Yes it would be great to have a FreeBSD-amd64-driver.

PS:
I Just bought a 6600GT AGP and I would be pleased with an updated
driver for this card.

I needed an AMD64 FreeBSD driver too!
I have Athlon64 3200+/Abit K8V-MAX3/nVidia FX 5700 and want to use it with full power of FreeBSD

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.

I also purchased an Nvidia 6600GT (and an nforce4 ultra board) solely because of the excellent 32bit FreeBSD drivers. I didn't occur to me that they might not yet support FreeBSD amd64 until I tried to install the drivers from the ports collection and got an error. Nvidias prompt attention to this matter will determine whether I continue to purchase their products.

Yet another "me too" post.

I'm actually in the process of choosing the parts for building a new system and I was bummed out when I saw that there were no offical drivers for amd64.

So i'll help too: i would also like to request an amd64 version of the FreeBSD drivers!

nForce drivers for FreeBSD would also be nice!
