Hi Kiffin.

Change your /etc/X11/xorg.conf archive. the line now is:

       Driver      "nv"

must be:

       Driver      "nvidia"

Hope this help.



Rather that using the nvidia driver from the ports I had earlier downloaded
the official freebsd driver from the nvidia site, but had installed it into
the old xorg environment under /usr/X11R6.

Do I need to reinstall it but this time in the new environment?

Is that then under /usr/X11R6?

How do I tell the make script to point it there, export X11BASE?

Or should I remove this driver altogether and go with the official ports

Thanks a lot in advance for all your help.
