Still doen't work! I mean, to put it in a nutshell: 1) kldstat shows the nvidia.ko module BUT no /dev/nvidia0 nor /dev/nvidiactl is present and this seems to cause the failure of startx 2) I have the following which seems far less than what I can see surfing the net (e.g. something like Idontremember.nvidia.0.%desc, and the likes): hpbsd # sysctl -a|grep nvidia nvidia 84 37K - 84 16,32,64,128,256,1024,2048 hw.nvidia.version: NVIDIA UNIX x86 Kernel Module 1.0-9746 Tue Dec 19 13:20:59 PST 2006 hw.nvidia.registry.EnableVia4x: 0 hw.nvidia.registry.EnableALiAGP: 0 hw.nvidia.registry.NvAGP: 3 hw.nvidia.registry.EnableAGPSBA: 0 hw.nvidia.registry.EnableAGPFW: 0 hw.nvidia.registry.SoftEDIDs: 1 hw.nvidia.registry.Mobile: 4294967295 hw.nvidia.registry.ResmanDebugLevel: 4294967295 hw.nvidia.registry.FlatPanelMode: 0 hw.nvidia.registry.DevicesConnected: 0 hw.nvidia.registry.RmLogonRC: 1 hw.nvidia.registry.DetectPrimaryVga: 1 hw.nvidia.registry.dwords: Again HELP....Ciao Vittorio _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
