I desperately needed a couple of additional "build boxes", as I'm currently MAINTAINER for ~110 ports, and am RP for more servers than I care to recall. So around mid December of 2016 I dropped ~$550 on some AMD based boards. I've always used boards with nVidia onboard graphics in the past, as the Intel/AMD/ATI/... graphics support was still "ramping up". Anyway, the FreeBSD Graphics wiki (https://wiki.freebsd.org/Graphics) indicated everything was in HEAD, and or CURRENT. So I felt safe going the AMD/ATI route this time. Long story short; I can't get any usable video. I'm not sure how to better provide useful information. According to the "Video decoder ring": (https://www.x.org/wiki/RadeonFeature/#index5h2) I'm supported. videoname -a doesn't produce anything. ;-) The only reason I'm able to use one of the boards to write this, is because I shoved an old nVidia pci card into the pci(32bit) slot. Which makes it unbearable -- honestly, it moves as fast as a 486. The output can't even keep up with my input on the keyboard. :-( FWIW testbox. 12.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #0 r310098: Thu Dec 15 06:10:10 PST 2016 root@testbox.:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/TESTBOXND amd64
