Original OSNews Interviews Today we feature an in-depth interview with three members of FreeBSD's Core (Wes Peters, Greg Lehey and M. Warner Losh) and also a major FreeBSD developer (Scott Long). It is a long read, but we touch a number of hot issues, from the Java port to corporate backing, the Linux competition, the 5.x branch and how it stacks up against the other Unices, UFS2, the possible XFree86 fork, SCO and its Unix IP situation, even re-unification of the BSDs. If you are into (any) Unix, this interview is a must read.

I have some problems setting up Voodoo5 with FreeBSD 4.8 in 3D accelerated mode. "Load dri/glx/666/blahblah" is all set on my XF86Config file (XFree86 4.3.0 used), I have the agp module ON in the kernel (voodoos don't use agp anyway), but I don't get 3D acceleration, GL apps run on software mode (mesa/glut is installed). I have installed 'driglide' via the ports system btw (not DRM though - do I really need to mess up with that?). I have also read the pages here (, but still no joy. Any pointers or tricks? ;)
