We don`t have native ATI driver ready right now but with Xorg 7.2 release real-soon-now we`ll have much better support.

PC-BSD already got open source ATI drivers (DRI) installed for R300 chips (your 9550 is supported).

At some point soon (next 2 months) xorg 7.2 will be ported to FreeBSD. Sometime after that, PC-BSD will also upgrade.

Hmmm, something I spotted the other day was : http://support.ati.com/ics/support/defa ... deptID=894 ; On my look thru the AMD site.

Odd how they list a problem with an OS that they dont support :P and I know AMD want BSD support... so I ponder if we arnt going to see something soon, maybe when they update the driver interface for linux... think they will have a big non-windows release around that time anyway Perhaps its just the drugs talking tho :/
