Any word on when ACPI suspend/resume support will be officially supported with the driver? It is the only thing keeping my system from suspending and resuming correctly. ie. if I don't load the nvidia driver suspend/resume works fine.

There's some experimental ACPI support in the driver, but it's disabled by default. You can enable it by editing src/nv-freebsd.h.

I know there is experimental support in the driver and I've tried that on several machines and they all refuse to suspend with that support compiled into the driver.

Now with TLS (thread-local storage) and GART support well supported for FreeBSD-amd64/6.0-STABLE, with Linux x86-64 and FreeBSD x86 supported, it seems that there is no reason that there should not be a FreeBSD x86-64 driver, as the community is growing, and those in this forum only represent a small minority of the total FreeBSD AMD64 users with NVIDIA (we all know open-sourcers love NVIDIA_; exp. that now the 7800 is the BEST GRAPHICS CARD, AMD64 - the BEST PROCESSOR; FreeBSD - the BEST OS).

Because of this, I am forced to use the x86 version of FreeBSD (I need 3d graphics b/c I use them a lot and hope my 64 bit addressing will save me sometime). It is not that the FreeBSD Kernel (or any other kernel) support 32 bit drivers, so it seems that we need a 64 bit driver for the best processing and best graphics possible (with X.Org).

Anyways, I believe the x86 driver for NVIDIA is a great start, and the 7676 is awesome; after trying it, my 7800 seems to be playing games awesome; in low-res and high res, extremely high FPS.
