It works fine on Debian Jessie for me, so I would assume that it should be at least possible to do the same on FreeBSD with some tweaking. The only FreeBSD install I have on a PPC is serial console only so I haven't really used graphics on it. > Do you know what card this is? It looks like a Radeon 9600 RV350 from the pasted kernel log, which is consistent with the Radeons that Apple shipped with the early G5 DPs. Note to OP: if you can manage to get it to work, the framebuffer works great, but Mesa still has some endianness issues. There are a few of us in the Linux and BSD world that are doing what we can to fix it, but there's not a whole lot of us, so progress is slow going. You'll have a lot more luck with NV30/NV40/NV50 cards if you want OpenGL for now. As I have a PowerBook G4 with a RV350, which obviously cannot be replaced as it is a laptop, that should change soon hopefully. Best, --arw -- A.
