hi, i'm about to build a new system and obviously it would be nice if everything worked nicely. my plan is to one of the asus A8V motherboards, but i've just spent a while reading nvidia forums and it seems there aren't any amd64 drivers for freebsd, or even any plans to release them.
i need to have direct rendering and dual head dvi. in 2006, decent 3d performance doesn't seem unreasonable, even if it is just to run a swanky screen saver. i've got an xfx geforce 6800GT sitting around here that i'd like to use, but it seems this is currently impossible on amd64. it seems like a huge waste to run the i386 version on an amd64 machine, but can anyone comment on the performance difference? my hope is to build a freebsd based video editing workstation using kino and friends. if nvidia aren't supporting freebsd on amd64, are there any other options? any help gratefully recieved. cheers, ke _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
