I have ported the nouveau drm driver.
It is working on NV50 cards, NV40 was working, but with WITNESS enabled
I seem to be getting a panic on NV40. My NV40 card seems to be having
memory issues so I haven't been able to get and/or see the backtrace. I
think it is just a locking issue which should be pretty easily solved if
I can get a clear backtrace.
You will need current libdrm and xf86-video-nouveau from ports.
This won't get you 3d right now, but should get you EXA + Xv.
