Another "me too"

My whole reason for buying an nVidia card is because they support FreeBSD (on x86). I've been running in x86 mode for over a year now waiting for amd64 drivers to show up, and the nvidia driver support is what's holding up my switch.

At this point I'd be happy with another 32-bit release, so my card will work in agp mode, but I'd really like to move to amd64.

Asus K8V-deluxe (via k8t800), athlon 64 3200+, nVidia geforce 6800 (AGP).

I purchased 5 amd64 workstations for work, all with nvidia cards. Gonna be buying another 20 machines for operations staff, but having second thoughts about using nvidia, as I can't use their binary drivers on amd64/FreeBSD.
More likely to go with a different vendor that has open drivers that I can build my self on amd64.

Come on nvidia! you are doing well, make it a home run!

So, how is it going with that driver? Any schedule on making it yet? We want to read your words about this. I guess the ones writing to this forum is about 1% of the people that actually want a FreeBSD/AMD64 nVidia driver.

Please, bring us some good news!

I don't think NetBSD supports Thread Local Storage(TLS). TLS was eventully required in FreeBSD to have NVIDIA continue releasing a kernel module.

TLS is also used in Linux and Solaris.

FreeBSD TLS.
Google doesn't really show any promising leads for TLS in NetBSD :-(

Anyways I think this is off topic. I'll shut up now.

It sucks when find out that every piece of hardware you have in your system rocks with FreeBSD except the video card.

"Me too". My new Opteron-based system is almost ready -- setting up the X-server is one of the few steps left.

Actually, the driver's page suggests, that FreeBSD-6.x supports the device "out of the box". The net/nvnet port should help users on other branches.

I wish, the video driver was as easily available as the network.

Dear Nvidia driver developers,
I'm writing you to ask you to support Nvidia drivers for the amd64 platform of FreeBSD. I bought an Athlon64 based system only get superior perfomance with 64 bits. I was extremely disappointed when I found out that there was no support for amd64.

Best regards,
