We at HardenedBSD have an experimental branch that is kept up-to-date with FreeBSD HEAD along with Jean-Sebastien's excellent work (and HardenedBSD's awesomeness on top of that). The code is here: https://github.com/HardenedBSD/hardenedBSD-playground/tree/hardened/experimental/master-i915 Latest builds are here: http://jenkins.hardenedbsd.org/builds/HardenedBSD-CURRENT-i915kms-amd64-LATEST/ISO-IMAGES/ Thanks, -- Shawn Webb HardenedBSD GPG Key ID: 0x6A84658F52456EEE GPG Key Fingerprint: 2ABA B6BD EF6A F486 BE89 3D9E 6A84 658F 5245 6EEE
