Default Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

I would be also very happy with a FreeBSD/amd64 driver.

I was also wondering:
now with a completely programmable chips such
as 6800, is still a problem for nvidia to release chip specs?
(please note, not the driver source code, just the spec).

An AMD64 FreeBSD driver is the only thing that I'm missing right now.

I hope NVidia team will change its mind on this topic and will assign the proper resources for releasing drivers for FreeBSD AMD64. I would be really glad if NVidia would hit again the market and the fans with a brand new platform supported
Thank you, keep up the good work, and give us amd64 drivers for FreeBSD

Cool Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

Yes a Nvidia graphics driver would be nice. I am also running FreeBSD 5.3 RELEASE AMD64 and have an Nvidia agp card. I think this thread has shown there is a demand for it so please give us an updated reply on project status.

I just bought a new PCI-Express GeForce 6800GT to go with my Athlon 64 (on my new nForce 4 motherboard I might add). I'm running FreeBSD/amd64 5.3-RELEASE, waiting for amd64 video drivers.

Default Re: FreeBSD-amd64 driver ?

I too, would like to see a 64bit FBSD driver; I plan on installing both Linux64 and BSD64 on my new workstation. (That's slowly being built...)

However, sadly enough, I rather see nVidia improve the 32bit and 64bit Linux drivers before investing time into BSD ones...
(It would be nice, if the nVidia Linux/BSD dev group was big enough to develop both... somehow I doubt it....)

Cheers,

LIKE A DRIVER (Remember those) for FREEBSD AMD64 so I can use my 6600GT Card.

I can only laugh at that comment, since in a chat Ati said they had "No plans to support FreeBSD at all". 32-bit or 64-bit.

You do need to be practical, there are approx 40 posts of people that want a FreeBSD 64-bit driver. 40 people. 40 nvidia owners......that's quite a tiny number of people.

I guess ignorance *really* is bliss. You obviously havent tried. I have spoken to people that have gotten an Ati Radeon 92XX AGP cards to work in FreeBSD AMD-64 in hardware accelerated OpenGL mode "perfectly" . Have you even looked in the FreeBSD AMD64 forums? I know you haven't.

Duh? Guess what I am doing now? Returning my 6600GT and going to purchase an ATI.

Instructions for ATI Cards Only: Install DRI, and the following is necessary in your kernel configuration:

device agp
device radeondrm

Thanks anyway Nvidia.

Do you really think that people from all over the world magically found this forum, and then somehow managed to find this particular thread? I'd estimate this group of 40 as a mere 1%. So there are easily 4,000 people that would like and use the driver. Here's an idea, write the driver put it out there and see how many times it gets downloaded. I guarantee it'd be more than 40 -- Idiot.


Most people just email the support team directly at Nvidia if they really cared.
Not mess around on this "Disney Land mickey mouse forum" made for 14 year olds like you.

Geesh mommy can I click all of the happy idiot Smiley Icon's now.....?
