Hello Dutch,

Thanks for replying. I am glad to know that the chip works with FreeBSD. 
That's confirmed by the Graphics url too. The url unfortunately cannot 
be deemed authoritative: there are many chips which actually work 
(HD8470D, for instance) but are not listed there.

I will, in future, though try to remember to refer to the site first. If 
that says 'Works', then no more querying should be necessary.

Tx and Regards,
