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):
I don't have an answer for you, but some info that *may* point in the right direction.

1) I see nvidia.ko but not agp.ko. I don't know if that's important or not. I need it on my machine (AMD64 processor and i386 FreeBSD). This is also an old nvidia version as newer ones lock up the machine :-(

2) Here are my sysctls for reference (and yes I do get the /dev/nvidia* devices which you do not; this is still 5.4 which may make some small difference). I get a similar list on another machine where nvidia is loaded but X is not running. Are there any errors when you kldload nvidia? Try taking out of loader.conf and then loading manually from the command line after a reboot.

3) Try the NVidia support forum (searching first, posting if you find nothing). http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=47
