Default ATI FireGL Linux Driver (fglrx) ported to FreeBSD
Chris Gilbert has picked up his pending work in cooperation with ATI to port their Linux "fglrx" driver to FreeBSD.
http://www.bsdforums.org/forums/showthr ... adid=37837

How do I install this on PC-BSD?
Is there anyone interested in doing a PBI for the newbies like me?

unpack it, then hit:
Code:

Password:
make install
Please read the README next time

INSTALLATION:

Type "make" to build the driver, then "make install" to install it.

CONFIGURATION TIPS:

Add the following to your xorg.conf to enable XV acceleration:

Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"

These should go in the driver section, and it should look something like this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"

Option "VideoOverlay" "on"
Option "OpenGLOverlay" "off"

Driver "fglrx"
VendorName "ATI"
BoardName "firegl"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
EndSection

Of course, replace the BusID value with the correct one.

It can be found using pciconf -lv

IMPORTANT:

Check mk/ati.defs.mk for important information regarding the installation
paths.

Also, this assumes you have linux emulation and a linux_base setup. If
you do not have this the install will error.

Finally, this release is 2D only and will not build the 3D kernel module.
The sources provided are outdated and broken, it is futile to mess with them.

One last thing! The install procedure as far as X goes is the same as for Linux.
You will need to use the "fglrx" X driver, and you will need to disable dri.

You're right I should have read the readme.
Actually I was looking for the driver that enabled the 3D capabilities of my ATI 9550. Aparently this release is 2D only and will not build the 3D kernel module...
Any ideas on how will I do that?
