Default What about FreeBSD?

I see that linux and windows got a new set of drivers. What about FreeBSD? Can we expect that to be coming anytime soon? Date? I just bought a Geforce 6600GT and it seems the 6113 drivers arent supporting my card. Any solutions or do I just have to wait for the driver?

We hope to release an updated FreeBSD/i386 driver soon.

Default Re: What about FreeBSD?

hopefully not before the Linux version is polished off good enough.. i personally don't think it is.. we've seen more and more unofficial patches coming out than ever before.. seems a little sloppy and unprofessional..(i'm saying this on the assumption that the Linux/FreeBSD versions are fairly similar excluding the kernel module and device API..with this assumption it brengs whatever bugs or badness that are in the Linux version will be in the FreeBSD version)
