The binary drivers do not work, presumably because they were compiled with
gcc-2.95.2?  I think the modules for X (not the kernel modules) are supposed
to be portable between platforms (i.e. Linux and FreeBSD).  However, you can
CVS source and try to build from there, but I have had no luck as I have not
been able to login:

[EMAIL PROTECTED] ati]$
cvs -d:pserver:[EMAIL PROTECTED]:/cvsroot/gatos login
Logging in to :pserver:[EMAIL PROTECTED]:2401/cvsroot/gatos
CVS password:
cvs [login aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if any)

I have the drivers working great under Linux using Gentoo ... but I would
like my workstation to be FreeBSD for the obvious reason ... but I need
accellerated OpenGL support.
