So, I'm not having terrific luck with any combination of settings I try. The latest FreeBSD driver release from Nvidia is the same as the version in the ports tree. This is what I've installed. Attempting the AGPGART route (building the driver with "WITH_FREEBSD_AGP=yes" and disabling NvAgp support in xorg.conf) still results in a reboot. Going the NvAGP route (Building without support for AGPGART, setting NvAgp to 1 in the xorg.conf, and setting hint.agp.0.disabled=1 in /boot/device.hints) also results in a reboot when X starts. One thing I notice here; when I specify hint.agp.0.disabled=1, and check the output of 'kldstat -v' after booting, I still see several agp drivers loaded: $ kldstat -v |grep -i agp 387 pci/agp_ali 388 pci/agp_amd 389 pci/agp_amd64 390 pci/agp_ati 391 pci/agp_i810 392 pci/agp_intel 393 pci/agp_nvidia 394 pci/agp_sis 395 pci/agp_via Is this a problem? I suspect a couple of problems with what I'm doing. Number one, there's several knobs to turn (in the driver, in the OS, etc.) and it's possible I'm not getting the correct combination. Other thing is, I've been told by a technician that this is a PCI Express video card, so would AGP even come into play?
