The good news: Done.
The bad news: this does not seem to have fixed the desire for
the nvidia driver.
Is there a known procedure (i.e. sctipt) for removing the
nvidia stuff root-and-branch? If not, can you suggest which files I
need to kill?
should do it. A lot of care goes into making sure that ports/packages
actually delete all the files they install.
In fact, running a pkg-delete -n it looks to me like nvidia-driver tries
to move back all the original glx files that it replaced.
You don't mention what commands you ran; one way to be sure of getting
everything afresh is to de-install all of xorg and nvidia, then
re-install xorg. If you are a portupgrade person, then make sure you
Also, you could try finding glx related files (e.g. "locate glx") and
see what packages they come from with pkg_which. Make sure you update
the locate database first ("/usr/sbin/periodic weekly" would do it and
other bits should do no harm).
PS According to my port tree, mplayer would only pull in nvidia driver
of you had specified WITH_NVIDIA=1 somewhere like make.conf,
pkgtools.conf or the original command line.
