Wayland is in the plans as well. Out of the box, it was enough to play cs: Wayland is the replacement doing one thing, and doing it well. That’s the sticking point IMHO. Part of me not trying to over generalize is to pinpoint deliberate decisions, and there’s no avoiding coming back around to systemd and Lennart. I guess the lack of loadable kernel modules is the real problem. But that’s different from being opposed to portability.

The Linux graphics developers are much more productive and prolific than their counterparts in Nouveaj land. The wiki page on the graphics stack is the best place for those interested to see where things stand. Solaris, OpenIndiana and Nexenta implement the driver in the graphical i staller, so they install and load the right Nvidia binary for you.
It was updated just a couple of months ago Really? Future plans are to bring the generic DRM code up to Linux 3.
There was never cross-compatibility that is being bantered about. That might result in removing some of the features that cgroups currently now provides.
Intel users will need to patch their source manually with Konstantin? My current machine is amdgpu RX but other people have reported success with radeonkms. FreshPorts displays only information on required and default dependencies.
If you buy from Amazon USA, please support us by using this link. Just because they’re not something that you’re interested in doesn’t mean that their existence and different design is inherently negative which is certainly what your comment implies.
X gruft and de-author pkg-descr. Unlike the i Intel graphics driver there are two separate modules available for AMD devices based on their generation.
The X server runs with privilege separation, so the main server does not run with privileges and there is no aperture driver for KMS. Welcome to Reddit, the front page of the internet. CategoryProject CategoryTeam Graphics last edited But once upon a time the Linux and BSD desktop communities shared the same boat and the same fate.
The context of the discussion related to graphics drivers, and by extension the desktop. Posted Oct 17, 0: There is a known race condition where the machine can lock up when loading the onuveau driver or starting X. BSD had to provide a compatibility layer that implemented linux’s proc. Join our community today!
Regarding ikms and xfvideo-intel, the reason for which I stated that it can’t keep up with Nvidia are:. This is well trod ground, and systemd is not setting a precendent here by requiring something BSD nor Hurd provide. Posted Oct 20, Tutorial on reddit’s markup rules.
Graphics drivers and the BSDs
There is also a perception in the BSD community that Linux is slowly drifting away from the traditional Unix model with projects like systemd and Wayland. I highly discpurage you to take the path of FreeBSD gaming.
At this time, I cannot enable latest Mesa3D and libdrm, because they break xfvideo-nouveau. Submit a new text post.
FreshPorts — xdrivers/xfvideo-nouveau
Recently, a problem cropped up with version 1. By the end of it was mostly ported, but it took until mid to actually get it working. 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.
A complete changelog of Xorg 7. EOL in Januaryconsider moving to Bind 9.
