Blame nVidia.. Can you tell me why there's no 64bits nVidia driver for
FreeBSD? I know there is a 32bits one. I used it on fbsd too. It used
to need special settings (agp). Use of nvidia driver comes first hand,
so what kind of research do you mean?

If I upgrade my solaris box it starts 64bits on AMD or 32bits on a 32b
machine. Including Xorg-7.2; including the nVidia driver (all 64bits).
You can download it on the nVidia site. But not for FreeBSD.  And
that's what I 'hate' (like I wrote). What's the fault in that
reasoning? Linux and solaris are better supported and that's a pity.

Absolutely. But nVidia beats the hell out of the nv driver.
