Ok. So input devices won't work either? I refer to this page here:

What is the driver mentioned here?

Incidentally, what is the difference between linux and bsd drivers? The
drivers in question are manufacturers binaries for linux in an RPM;
hence the question. Plus I came across several notations regarding
building or using drivers from linux in bsd (linux-kmod-compat port, the
above link, and more).

For reference I'm merely very curious, not argumentative on this. Cheers
for any answers offered.
