Recently, he has been working on updating the i code. Linux Power User Bundle. This table needs to be rewritten using GPU codenames as the key. Outdated initial port here. But that’s different from being opposed to portability. Intel users will need to patch their source manually with Konstantin? How’s the [Nvidia] driver support compared to Linux?

Graphics hardware missing from these tables may or may not work. There is also a perception fredbsd the BSD community that Linux is slowly drifting away from the traditional Unix model with projects like systemd and Wayland. It’s a bit early to look into actually using Wayland.

And the collective is Unix. Privacy Forums Blog Contact. Can’t install nouveau driver. He would also like to get rid of the code duplication by merging the drm and drm2 freesd trees. It has hotplug support for input devices, though there is no keyboard support in the wscons X driver xfinput-ws.

You’ll have to use the proprietary blob driver with FreeBSD. It’s on the desktop that you can have dozens of independent background processes with complex interdependencies but little explicit cooperation between them, and where systemd can nouvewu provide the loose coupling needed.


Regarding ikms and xfvideo-intel, the reason for which I stated that it can’t keep up with Nvidia are:. This page contains frerbsd table should illustrate the state of various Intel chipsets.

With KSM and systemd, it can be done without.

Feel free to attack that strawman if you wish. If you need to reset your password, click here. In an ideal world, the community would get together and hash out a more limited interface which minimizes the amount of work being done in the kernel.

For now, it’s recommended to use the Nvidia OEM driver. And Lennart has specifically stated that he sees no value in portability to non-Linux systems, period. I got driver nouveau for my video card on my Linux distro I agree that many things are definitely better done in the kernel.

Not developed sincedeclared dead Nouveau was being worked on but the project stalled and has been dormant for some time now. In addition, over time newer hardware was only supported by the Linux drivers—at least for Intel and, later, AMD.

Graphics drivers and the BSDs

No, I am not writing this from a Borg cube currently in space over your head – though it could sensibly be the case – or not sensibly. The sysvinit that does exists for debian-bsd and debain-hurd is not as complete freebsx you would hope.


Does not build Maintainer: We can quibble about what necessary means, but clearly the BSD folks perceive many projects relying, directly or indirectly, on Linux-specific kernel features in a way that leaves them out in the cold. In the past the system interface amounted to something vague commonly called the Unix API, some of it formalized by SUS and some of it just common wisdom about what things a reasonable Unix variant is supposed to provide.

For example, Lennart reimplemented libevent. Update several xorg related ports, including: I write network software for a living and systemd does almost nothing for me. Mesa3D and libdrm do not break any drivers. I guess the lack of loadable kernel modules is the real problem. This update includes some components from Xorg 7. The latter should be easier since TTM support was added for the Radeon driver. Posted Oct 16, 8: Now you’re saying the opposite, so should I reconsider this?
