https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=260199 Bug ID: 260199 Summary: FAQ references to NVIDIA resources Product: Documentation Version: Latest Hardware: Any URL: https://cgit.freebsd.org/doc/tree/documentation/conten t/en/books/faq/_index.adoc?id=989d921f5d4ac8d8b7c831c1 3b8954ad1901be24#n1902 OS: Any Status: New Severity: Affects Many People Priority: --- Component: Documentation Assignee: doc@FreeBSD.org Reporter: firstname.lastname@example.org CC: avg@FreeBSD.org Under <https://docs.freebsd.org/en/books/faq/#x-3d-acceleration>: > … nVidia provides detailed information on which card is supported by which > driver on their web site: http://www.nvidia.com/object/IO_32667.html. … From bug 260183 comment 0: > … _not_ the best page to tell which driver is appropriate because the > result is legacy-only <https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/drivers/unix/legacy-gpu/>. Instead, maybe: <https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/drivers/unix/> > Unix Drivers | NVIDIA Not anchorable, but there are sections for: * FreeBSD x86 * FreeBSD x64 The latter includes a link to the latest production branch, where (through clicking the version) a SUPPORTED PRODUCTS tab makes things reasonably clear for this branch. Legacy ====== <https://forums.freebsd.org/posts/524748> reminds me that <https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/drivers/unix/legacy-gpu/> – > What's a legacy driver? | NVIDIA – was somewhat ambiguous, possibly contradictory, when read alongside other NVIDIA resources. Still, this NVIDIA page is probably a useful point of reference. Edge cases ========== <https://lists.freebsd.org/archives/freebsd-hackers/2021-December/000582.html> for example, Andriy Gapon wrote: > Apparently not all GT 730 cards are made equal. … Without attempting to detail any case, maybe the FAQ (or better the Handbook) should simply: * acknowledge that edge cases exist "NVIDIA's pages are not entirely authoritiative" or words to that effect * steer to <https://www.freebsd.org/support/> in case of trouble. -- You are receiving this mail because: You are the assignee for the bug.
