Default NetBSD on iMac


I never try to use NeBSD but I am FreeBSD user. FreeBSD 10.0 is on iMc 11,1.
Graphics is:
Chipset Model: ATI Radeon HD 4850
Type: GPU
It doesn't work without KMS support and I did read that NetBSD has KMS support and I have Apple Magic Mouse which is not support in FreeBSD (works just left and right click). The sound is Cirrus Logic which works so so n FreeBSD and I hope that will work on NetBSD too.
Does anyone has NetBSD installed on iMac, please?

Thank you very much.

Wait for NetBSD 7(greatest thing since sliced bread) with KMS for Radeon and Intel.
