I have recently upgraded my 5.4-STABLE system to the new FreeBSD-6 line, of
FreeBSD prokreation 6.0-BETA3 FreeBSD 6.0-BETA3 #3: Sat Aug 27 19:16:28 CEST

I indeed have to say great job - the system is as snappy as ever, however, I
have a few errors that i would believe need fixing before -RELEASE is tagged
Firstly, I cannot seem to be able to build my aureal kld to play any sound. I
believe the problem is quite trivial, however, I do not know FreeBSD sources
well enough to track the error and fix it.
Also, the linux_dri port is utterly broken on FreeBSD-6 when using radeon
Due to the late improvements by anholt towards a better radeon card support
for dri, the drm kernel module radeon.ko /in my case, built into the kernel/
no longer works with terribly old dri libs.
The solution I would best see here is bumping emulators/linux_base-suse-9.3 as
default linux compat, updating the unhappy ports to play nicely with such an
upgrade, and using xorg-dri drivers for linux_dri compatible with the
xorg-libs avaliable with emulators/linux_base-suse-9.3.
I would gladly help doing that, as I am a little more familiar with ports
hacking rather than kernel hacking - far from perfect with it tho ;-)
Below follows the aureal-kmod build log. I have filed a pr about it, yet not
recieved a confirmation yet with the number to track down, but I will keep it
up to date :-)
