Kdegames compiles, for some strange reason just not in pkgsrc. I haven't
time to investigate it yet. KDE runs just fine in DragonFly and as KDE
committer I hope to take care that it will stay so.
About graphics cards support - you just have to look at Xorg drivers and
forget about binary blobs. Intel chips (I use only these) have excellent
support, for ATI and Nvidia cards 2d is working mostly, latest chips may
not have support for all 2d accelerations (Xv, render). 3d hardware
acceleration isn't working in DragonFly anyway at the moment.
