    Phoronix: AMD Radeon KMS Still Being Ported To FreeBSD

    It's been a while since last talking about the project to bring the Linux driver for AMD Radeon KMS to FreeBSD. The project is still going forth for expanding FreeBSD kernel mode-setting, but there hasn't been too much progress as of late...

    Good luck for FreeBSD 10. It would round-out support nicely though... FOSS KMS-based Intel, FOSS KMS-Based AMD, and proprietary Nvidia all on FreeBSD.

      I would like to correct this sentence: I'm not paid by the FreeBSD Foundation and never asked the Foundation to do so.

      Thank you very much for the coverage on Phoronix!

      Thanks!

      That would be nice indeed to have something ready for FreeBSD 10, but I really need to hurry up

        Nice

        Nice to see FreeBSD get KMS-support.
        Hope to see KMS-support soon on OpenBSD, NetBSD, OpenSolaris, DragonFly BSD and Plan 9 too.

        Hope to see Wayland on FreeBSD soon.

          Thanks for porting the FOSS radeon drivers to FreeBSD; while I'm using Linux, it's nice to see a potential alternative if I ever do want to try.
          It also means more users for the code, so I'm happy about that.

          And try to ignore the trolls.

              Thanks for the work.
              I've been waiting for the time when I can use PC-BSD on my desktop without falling back to VESA mode.
              Out of curiosity, how's it all shaping up?
              And how's the backport to FreeBSD 9 looking?

                There're two known issues I'm considering show stoppers: a deadlock when using OpenGL and a memory page refcount problem causing X.Org to crash. There're many other issues after that but the driver might be stable enough, so that we can prepare a live CD to allow more people to test it.

                9-STABLE and 10-CURRENT are not that different regarding the DRM area. The backport is a work in progresss but of course, it suffers the same problems than the 10-CURRENT driver.
