The X server runs with privilege separation, so the main server does not run with privileges and there is no aperture driver for KMS. If you buy from Amazon USA, please support us by using this link. As far as FreeBSD goes, and starting with This was created for the intel KMS work being done althouthough It probably works for other chips. Just like the BSDs. Thanks ; Anyway, I was speaking of debate around Nouveau and the possibility to port it, though I’m not the one who would ever be able to do that, and given my hardware, I’m pretty much satisfied with nv.

So BSD kernels could very well grow the ability to run systemd the same way they’ve grown the ability to run freebwd There is no distinfo for this port. In an ideal world, the community would get together and hash out a more limited interface which minimizes the amount of work being done in the kernel.

Pretty sure the history on this is houveau Future plans are to bring the generic DRM code up to Linux 3.

It didn’t happen before simply because of lack of attention, not because of some limitation in the design of X.


Don’t noubeau with NetBSD, there is some work going on with greebsd to porting nouveau, but it’s a work in progress I believe. Thread local storage TLS is not supported in the GLX driver and there are some issues with futexes and shared-memory fences xshmfence that need to be resolved. It was, in short, a “fiasco”, he said.

But the proprietary one is kinda on its way out. If you’d like to contribute content, let us know. I don’t think “morals” is the right word. But that ship seems to have sailed. There was never cross-compatibility that is being bantered about. Having a problem logging in?

His XDC talk is another attempt to reach out to the community. Please visit this page to clear all LQ-related cookies. From Nvidia site http: EOL in Januaryconsider moving to Bind 9. OpenBSD preferred to keep things as confined to userland as practicable.

But I’m not saying that the original idea of KMS is the wrong balance, even from a global, multi-kernel perspective. The FreeBSD graphics team is small, with just two kernel and two ports developers, not all of whom are fully dedicated to graphics work. The wscons console driver is integrated with KMS.

He has also synchronized the device-independent DRM code with the version in Linux 3. But nouvrau is a downside to that: Tigeot was never able to reproduce the results and suspects it only worked on the student’s hardware. That’s the sticking point IMHO.


We can quibble about what necessary means If there ever was a fundamental driver feature that deserved to live in a kernel driver, it was display mode setting. Are the drivers decent?

The issue is how much you keep in the kernel. That changed inwhen the DRM tree moved into the Linux kernel tree; that move was done to rationalize DRM development, but had the side effect of cutting the BSDs adrift to some extent.

Find More Posts by giovannidev. As far as FreeBSD goes, and starting with Speaking of amdgpu driver, are you referring to radeon and xfvideo-ati or the currentlly under mantainement xfvideo-amdgpu? I highly discpurage you to take the path of FreeBSD gaming. The best way to see what’s available for your driver is to execute sysctl compat.
