AMD Kernel Mode-Setting Progresses For FreeBSD
Phoronix: AMD Kernel Mode-Setting Progresses For FreeBSD
More of the Radeon kernel mode-setting (KMS) driver stack being ported to FreeBSD from Linux is beginning to function...
KMS on BSD is a waste of time
Why bother with KMS on BSD?
It'll never be used by any sane person
The only thing that will happen is Mac OSX absorbing the code and benefiting. Nothing more.
That's why the makers of these KMS drivers for Linux should make thier code GPL not BSD. Even when BSDed initially, linking to the Linux kernel which is GPL makes the drivers GPL. So those BSD nutcases are violating the GPL as they have always did: http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/...en-source-code
When they talk about FreeBSD 10, I always laugh my ass off. Cause many predict FreeBSD will be no more and the code base absorbed by apple.
This is great news.
With Intel, AMD (ATI) and Nvidia covered, there's only VIA left to support with FreeBSD.
I remember when KMS drivers on Linux were at about this point, and people were calling it good enough to start switching. Not all that long ago, either. I'd be surprised if it's stable before Q4, but I'd expect to see it stable before Summer 2014.
Apple already has drivers, though I can't say anything about quality.
I think Micheal just posts BSD articles mostly to sit back and laugh at the BSD troll(s) flood the thread, lol.
The fact that the above 7 posts did not mention the above, is to me, almost undeniable proof that no one read the article and went straight to the forums to vent his 'opinion'.

Lol, indeed! It's pretty damn funny actually.
