The only thing that is a bit annoying is sound (which has been
reported as working, read the other posts). BTW, integrated
sound chipset are usually crap.
ACPI/APIC isn't really necessary (I wasn't using it since DES
told it was working with NO_MIXED_MODE commented). The MB has
two integrated networking chipsets, and people usually don't
care about one not working. And I said I was clueless about USB
because I wasn't using it.
That makes the box usuable (remove "totally" if it can make you
My point is that a page with FreeBSD/amd64 status on different
MBs would be much more useful than "Plz stay away from nvidia,
this is crap".
